I've been keeping an eye on Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (NASDAQ:SBRA) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe SBRA has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a notable dividend payer with a an impressive history of performance, trading at a great value. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Sabra Health Care REIT here.

Good value with proven track record and pays a dividend

SBRA delivered a bottom-line expansion of 82% in the prior year, with its most recent earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. In addition to beating its historical values, SBRA also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 18%. This is what investors like to see! SBRA's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if SBRA's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, SBRA's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that SBRA's price is currently discounted.
