  • Is this recent rise largely due to impending dividend payout?

  • The OFFICIAL skinny on the next dividend:

    "Medical Properties Trust, Inc. Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend of $0.24 Per Share
    BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 25, 2017-- Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE: MPW) announced today that its Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per share of common stock to be paid on July 14, 2017, to stockholders of record on June 15, 2017."
  • Good stock, but has large short position. No real reason to get the "negative" change, but the timing is suspect. Without solid support the questionable news change will put the shorts in control and they will force it down.
    IMO, the drop is a short attack and how far we go down is anybody's guess. Shorts have ruined many companies because there is nothing to stop continuous shorting. ( no uptick rule) so big money can short a company right out of business by forcing the pps down until they are outside their covenants and all hell breaks loose.
    Some how shorting should be limited, but I don't know how.
    All this just my humble opinion.
  • Last divd. day was 3/16/2017....With saying this the next divd day more or less """ should be June 16 2017 """" right....This wasnt the best week for the stock and under $13.00 makes it a " Steal to me " as a company ( and for the divd. toooo !!! ) IM FEELING FOR THE QTR. THE " TRUE PRICE FOR THE STOCK AT THIS TIME WILL BE SHOWED BETWEEN mAY 16TH AND JUNS 16TH

  • hi, im new to mpw and attracted to that tasty yield..but how is this company paying a bigger dividend per share than its earnings?
    The other reits ive researched dont have this situation...is it normal? So, isnt this financially doomed unless there is a big increase in earnings around the corner, which doesnt seem to be the case for mpw? thanks for your insights.

  • The stock had another nice day upward, and hit one of my magic-numbers ( $13.50 ). I bought 10 oct/12.50 calls on Friday @ $1.05 , to put with the other 10 I had at $.45 i bought on the large dip a few days ago. So i'm long 2000 shs ( or 20 calls ) of oct/$12.50 calls @ $ .75 cents ( last qte was $1.05 @1.20 no volume today )... Has anyone heard the ex-divd date for this next quarter ???. Please adv. if you do here. i have been in this stock net-long since cramer put me in at $11.00 more or less 3 years ago. The 8.45% divd. I get ( because i own stock from $10.10 to $13.65 ) keeps me in it. The stocks mgnt team is great, and seems to have all the right answers, when decisions hv to be made , ( like in the case of ===ADPT === ) I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR OR READ FROM MORE PEOPLE ON HERE, AND LETS TRY TO GET THIS BOARD ACTIVE AGAIN, " WITH SHAREHOLDERS ONLY " IF POSS.....GOOD-DAY TO ALL HERE
  • MPW positives and negatives

    MPW positives
    1. Good yield
    2. Good sector -- cant be disrupted by FANG like innovators
    3. Internally managed
    4. Long term contracts with hospitals
    5. growing dividend
    6. low debt to equity ratio
    7. globally diversified

    MPW negatives
    1.Secondary at a very low price. The effective price was 12.69
  • Great yield, solid balance sheet, growing market share in a growing market, increasing dividends regularly. Long term value investors, a pure buy and hold, you won't be disappointed - IMHO
  • AT SUPPORT 12.44....NEXT STOP 12.15
  • clearly management strategy is to grow the company via acquisition. For a REIT that makes sense - you can't, after all, grow one organically. But what they have to be careful of, however, is over reach. Stay tuned...
  • Dilution of shares? Why?
