    Don't forget that they need to first "purge" profits before they can distribute divys as a REIT. Shareholders will get 20-25% of the "purge" as cash and the rest as shares. All will be taxable. If you want to avoid capital gains, it is best to sell before the purge and repurchase afterward. I don't think the selling is over.

    Also - this is a new small cap stock, which is subject to much higher volatility.

    But these issues provide opportunity for those with a longer term horizon and capacity for some tax on capital gains.

    Personally, I expect CTRE to initiate a divy at 6%+ at $15 pps with significant capacity to increase the divy as they grow. .

    Disclosure: I own CTRE pirmarily through ENSG spinof but I did pick up a few shares at under $15 a little while back. Discovered ENSG as a unloved, undiscovered small cap at $15 pps several years ago, but believed in the business model and management. Have experienced much volatility with the stock, but ultimately is trended long-term "up and to the right" with a gain of over 3.4 times my investment.
