Diversicare Healthcare Services, Inc. (DVCR) today announced a pending transaction as part of its portfolio management strategy. The Company has reached an agreement in principal with Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (OHI) to amend its master lease to terminate operations of ten nursing facilities located in Kentucky, totaling approximately 885 skilled nursing beds, and to concurrently transfer operations to an operator selected by Omega.
Omega Healthcare (OHI) will benefit from its focus on accretive buyouts this year. Particularly, the MedEquities Realty acquisition will help in diversification of its assets as well as operators.
One of the painful but crucial lessons that the re-escalating trade war has taught us is that anything can happen. Just a few weeks ago, a resolution between the U.S. and China appeared an inevitability. Now, even the idea of getting together for talks is questionable. That said, not all stocks to buy are vulnerable to unexpected sentiment shifts.If you're seeking a market segment that will likely produce strong gains over the next decade, it's time to look at assisted-living stocks. Elderly care operates on two core principles. First, it's our moral and ethical obligation to help those that cannot help themselves. Second, aging happens to everyone. Therefore, these specialized-care facilities will essentially exist forever.Other fundamental factors support the case for assisted-living stocks to buy. The biggest tailwind is the sheer size of the baby boomer demographic. Between 1946 and 1964, the U.S. experienced 76 million births. By 2012, 11 million of this generation had died, but that still leaves 65 million survivors. That's a lot of folks that will seek care during their golden years.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMoreover, advancing technologies in medicine and nutrition have noticeably increased our ability to extend our life. True, life expectancy is falling in this country. However, much of that can be attributed to the opioid crisis, which largely affects younger Americans. Overall, though, the point stands: healthcare innovations have had a net positive impact on baby boomers, which in turn affects assisted-living stocks to buy. * 7 Stocks to Buy that Lost 10% Last Week Best of all, the demand exists irrespective of economic or market conditions. It's an area that politically, Washington power-brokers cannot simply gloss over. Unlike discretionary sectors, specialized care levers a very human face. With that, here are seven assisted-living stocks to buy: Welltower (WELL)One of the attributes that attracted me to Welltower (NYSE:WELL) was that it's among Fortune's most admired companies of 2019. From a PR perspective, that's a huge story. As you probably know, assisted-living stocks don't enjoy the greatest of reputations due to scandalous stories of senior abuse.But as an investor, WELL stock provides many other substantive points to chew on. Primarily, shares have performed admirably this year, gaining over 18% since the January opener. Not only that, WELL recovered quickly from last year's broader market selloff. It ended 2018 with a return of 15%, whereas many other companies floundered.If that doesn't convince you to put WELL among your list of stocks to buy, consider its dividend. With a 4.4% yield, this can provide comfortable support should the markets experience a downturn. Ensign Group (ENSG)If you want pure exposure to assisted-living stocks to buy, take a good look at Ensign Group (NASDAQ:ENSG). Headquartered in Mission Viejo, California, ENSG stock is levered toward a robust local economy. Moreover, it offers comprehensive solutions for the elderly, including in-house therapy and hospice care.As with Welltower, ENSG stock exhibits tremendous resilience, even in the face of troubling market conditions. It absorbed a sharp blow during the broader selloff in late 2018. However, shares quickly bounced back. By the second half of February, ENSG had recovered all of its prior losses and then some. * 10 Baby Boomer Stocks to Buy That said, Ensign Group's equity is more representative of growth names than say dividend stocks to buy. For instance, ENSG is up 49% year-to-date, but only offers a miniscule 0.33% yield. Still, if you want to bet on extremely favorable demographics, Ensign is a great idea. Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI)Another strong name among assisted-living stocks to buy is Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI). After working through some operational issues, management started this year off on an aggressive footing. In the first quarter, Omega bought out MedEquities Realty Trust (NYSE:MRT), which should boost the operational profile of OHI stock.However, you wouldn't guess that Omega was running on less than 100% of its cylinders by looking at its chart. On a year-to-date basis, OHI stock is up slightly over 15%. Last year, shares returned 40%. As you might imagine, the company hardly blinked during the recent downturn.I expect more of the same should the economy go sour due to a prolonged U.S.-China trade war. Recent quarterly revenues suggest that management is likely to overcome miscues from the past. Also, OHI stock pays out a very generous 7% dividend yield, which should attract shelter-seeking investors. HCP (HCP)A key advantage in acquiring assisted-living stocks to buy is their inverse correlation to current market conditions. For instance, while the benchmark S&P 500 index is down roughly 2% this month, senior-care specialist HCP (NYSE:HCP) has gained almost 7%.It was the same story last year. In the final quarter of 2018, the S&P 500 dropped 10%. On the other hand, HCP stock shot up just under 10% over the same time frame.I expect a similar dynamic if the markets slow down due to trade-war related complications. As with the other organizations in this segment, HCP stock will enjoy consistent, if not growing demand. Furthermore, HCP levers wider coverage of the healthcare sector, including life science, hospital and medical-office properties. * 7 A-Rated Healthcare Stocks for Industry Expansion Finally, HCP pays out a generous 4.7% dividend. Typically, income-generating companies fare better than pure growth names during a bear market. That's one more reason to put HCP in your list of stocks to buy! National HealthCare (NHC)Admittedly, some of the top names among assisted-living stocks represent speculation toward a corporate turnaround. What I like about National HealthCare (AMEX:NHC), though, is their "steady as she goes" financials. For instance, over the past four years, revenue for NHC stock has grown consecutively. This trend continued up to its most recent first quarter of 2019 earnings report.Granted, the growth rate isn't anything to write home about, which is essentially low single digits. But with the massive demographic tailwind that NHC stock benefits from, I'm not sure if they need crazy growth. Approximately 10,000 baby boomers retire each day, which will eventually translate to a robust clientele.Plus, National HealthCare pays out a 2.6% dividend yield. While the payout isn't as attractive as some of the other stocks to buy that I mentioned, the company's upwardly trekking sales is a significant positive. Capital Senior Living (CSU)While assisted-living stocks generally have a boring reputation -- how many of you got really jazzed about this segment? -- not all sector players fit that description. If you're the type to mix your gambling with elderly care, Capital Senior Living (NYSE:CSU) may be right for you.However, I don't want to mislead you in any way: CSU stock is one of the riskiest investments, both in assisted living and the broader markets. Last year was particularly awful for the organization, which suffered from slowing revenues and widening net-income losses. This dynamic was unhelpful to its overbearing long-term debt, to say the least. * 10 Stocks to Sell Before They Tank Your Portfolio Still, some hope exists for a turnaround. Revenue in Q1 was in line with the year-ago haul, suggesting that the sales bleed has stopped. Also, CSU stock has stabilized since hitting rock-bottom in March. It's super-risky, but that's sort of the point. Brookdale Senior Living (BKD)Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE:BKD) is a contradiction. On one hand, it levers the fundamentals that should make BKD stock a top player in the markets. Despite many troubled years, Brookdale is still the nation's top senior-housing owner and operator.But on the other hand, we've got to talk about those troubles. Since 2016, Brookdale's annual revenue has declined consecutively. Even worse, its Q1 2019 sales haul of $1 billion slipped more than 12% year-over-year. It has a sizable debt load and its net-income losses have widened considerably over the years.As a result, BKD stock has fallen into the dumps. But if you're a diehard contrarian, Brookdale may have something for you. Again, it's the top senior-housing operator in America. When you factor in the baby boomer demographic wave, BKD might make some big surprises.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, have broad appeal for income investors. REITs provide investors the ability to purchase a stake in real estate, without having to own physical properties. In addition, REITs widely offer much higher dividend yields than many other stocks.
Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (OHI) (“Omega”) and MedEquities Realty Trust, Inc. (MRT) (“MedEquities”) today announced the completion of Omega’s acquisition of all of the outstanding shares of MedEquities.

Following the acquisition, Omega will continue to be the premier publicly traded real estate investment trust (REIT) focused principally on skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), by adding a diversified portfolio of investments including 34 properties located in 7 states and operated by 11 different operators.

While investment strategies differ with specific portfolio targets, all investors should identify a few of the best long-term dividend stocks to build the core of their investment portfolio strategy, suggests Ned Piplovic, income expert and editor of DividendInvestor.
[Editor's note: This story was previously published in February 2019. It has since been updated and republished.]Real estate stocks have become a popular income investment vehicle. Most operate as real estate investment trusts (REITs). These REITs are supposed to pay at least 90% of their income in the form of dividends. In exchange, REIT do not have to pay income tax on the net income generated from their properties.For this reason, REITs tend to pay higher dividends than most stocks. The average S&P 500 stock now generates a dividend yield of 1.9%. The average equity (meaning non-mortgage) REIT currently yields an average 3.9% return.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 6 Trade War Stocks With a Lot of Risk However, some pay a much higher dividend and can sustain that payout for several years. This occurs even as lifestyle changes and technology affect the demand for and use of properties. In our dynamic economy, these five real estate stocks have maintained strong, steady dividends amid the changes, Consequently, I believe they are good stocks to buy Kite Realty (KRG)Source: m01229 via FlickrAt first glance, Kite Realty (NYSE:KRG) may seem like a strange name to include on a list of real estate stocks to buy. In an overbuilt retail real estate market, many investors want to avoid the retail REIT sector in which KRG operates.However, investors need to remember that brick-and-mortar retail is not dying, it is merely shrinking. Hence, prospective buyers should not necessarily avoid these stocks. Amid the abandoned malls across the landscape, retail REITs such as KRG stock have found a way to thrive.Kite Realty has the good fortune (or good business sense) of owning property mostly in high-growth markets. Even in an overbuilt market, KRG maintains high occupancy and lease rates. Moreover, it is reshuffling its portfolio to increase this geographic focus. This has led to increased buying among insiders and hedge funds.This may explain why the KRG stock price has begun to recover. KRG fell from just above $30 per share in 2016 before opening 2019 near its $13.66 52-week low. However, since then the stock has risen to above $16 per share.The dividend has increased every year since 2014. Thanks to these payout hikes and a falling stock price, the $1.27 per share annual dividend yields around 8%. Retail REITs may look scary right now, but even in this depressed retail real estate market, KRG stock can still offer generous dividend yields at a reasonable price, so it definitely deserves to be included on a list of real estate stocks to buy for dividend income. Omega Healthcare (OHI)Source: Shutterstock Omega Healthcare (NYSE:OHI) is an equity REIT specializing in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities across the U.S. and U.K. The company operates under a "triple-net" arrangement, meaning the lessor takes responsibility for taxes, insurance, and maintenance costs.Thanks to the aging of the baby boom generation, around 10,000 people per day age into the Medicare system. Hence, demographics serve as the growth engine for this and many real estate stocks of this type.The peak of the baby boom occurred in 1957, meaning this trend should peak in 2022. However, I think this growth should remain strong until 2029 when the last of the baby boom generation reaches age 65.The dividend has enjoyed a steady growth trend since 2003. Today, the company pays an annual dividend of $2.64 per share. This takes the yield to just over 7.4%.Unlike many REITs, OHI stock may bring some stock price growth. The forward P/E stands at about 20.2. This may seem high for a REIT. However, analysts forecast an average growth rate of 15.8% per year over the next five years. * 6 Trade War Stocks With a Lot of Risk For this reason, both the dividend and the price of OHI stock should move higher over the next few years. Like with all healthcare REITs, I think investors need to stay mindful of demographics. However, as long as baby boomers keep aging into Medicare, I believe OHI will continue to prosper, justifying its inclusion on this list of real estate stocks to buy for dividend income. Senior Housing Properties Trust (SNH)Source: WikipediaAs the name implies, Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE:SNH) operates 443 properties spread across 42 states and Washington, D.C. These consist of medical facilities, wellness centers, and communities for senior living spread across the United States. Like Omega, SNH stock should also benefit from a large baby boom generation aging into Medicare.The annual dividend currently stands at 60 cents per share, leading to a yield of 7.25%.Like many real estate stocks, SNH tends to see little price movement. SNH stock traded at about $9 per share at the time of its IPO in 2000. It sells for around $8.30 per share today and has fallen from a high above $28 per share in 2013.If history serves as an indication, I would expect little price appreciation. However, for those who want a high dividend that should hold up for most of the next decade, SNH stock will serve that purpose well,making it one of the top five real estate stocks to buy for dividend income.. STAG Industrial (STAG)Source: Shutterstock STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG) buys and operates single-tenant industrial properties across the United States. It owns 76.8 million sq. feet of space spread across 390 properties in 37 states. STAG stock and other industrial real estate stocks have benefited from an unexpected source of revenue over the last few years -- e-commerce. As more retail business moves online, a large portion of retail real estate activity has moved into warehouses.Thanks to Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and other e-retailers, industrial space has rented as a premium. This premium has gone into profits, and by extension, dividends. Investors now receive 48 cents per share annually, a yield of 4.9%. Best of all, payouts come in the form of monthly dividends that have grown steadily over time.Moreover, the dividend should become a more critical component of STAG stock as growth slows down. After seeing an average 65% annual growth rate in the previous five years, analysts forecast growth of only 7% per year for the next five years. As a result, the stock has almost tripled since its low in 2011. I would expect with slower growth, the move higher should stop. * 6 Trade War Stocks With a Lot of Risk Still, blurring the line between industrial and retail properties has permanently changed the industry for STAG. The business created by e-commerce will not go away. Even if growth in the STAG stock price slows, expect the equity to maintain its stable, high-yielding monthly dividend, making it a top real estate stock to buy for dividend income.. Vereit (VER)Source: lee via FlickrVereit (NYSE:VER) is one of the few equity real estate stocks that does not limit itself to one property type. This diversified REIT owns and operates industrial, office, restaurant, and retail properties across the country. Their portfolio consists of 95 million square feet spread across approximately 4,000 properties. The REIT owns buildings in 49 U.S. states as well as Puerto Rico.VER stock had peaked at just above $15 per share in 2013, and it has declined for most of the time since. However, after bottoming at $6.52 nearly a year ago, the equity has turned around. Today, it trades at around $8.48, near its 52-week high. While I would not rule out a recovery, I would still recommend this primarily for income investors.The dividend has delivered stability and steady increases over the same time frame. Right now, VER pays an annual dividend of 56 cents per share. That comes to a yield of about 6.5%. Though the company does not increase the dividend annually, it did hike the quarterly payout in 2018 and 2015, the year it switched from monthly to quarterly dividends.Time will tell whether the VER stock price continues its move higher. Still, with a diversified real estate portfolio and steady, high-yield dividends, income investors should do well in Vereit regardless of the price action, so it's definitely one of the top five real estate stocks to buy for dividend income..As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.
