Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company's future expectations. However, with a relatively muted revenue growth of 4.9% expected over the next couple of years, growth doesn’t seem like a key driver for a buy decision for NorthWest Healthcare Properties Real Estate Investment Trust, at least in the short term.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since NWH.UN is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock.
