Medical Properties Trust (NYSE: MPW) gets a lot of upside out of being a real estate investment trust (REIT), not least because it is investing in a market that nearly everyone expects to grow: healthcare spending. According to data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for healthcare spending is expected to be 5.4% through 2028, reaching $6.2 trillion by then, with healthcare expenditures taking up 19.7% of the GDP in 2028. Retirees can benefit from that trend by investing in Medical Properties Trust.
