Hey all! I once heard someone saying that with the baby boomers getting older, there will be a large demand for senior housing, but I have been analyzing reits like SNR and SNH and they don't seem to be doing so well currently. I am interested to know if anyone thinks it's worth investing some money in them now since they might go up in the future?- deadtom - 2019-04-16 19:34:52 PDT

What’s on your mind?

What is keeping #LTC from raising dividends? Last time they bumped the quarterly payments for common shares was in Oct 2016, that’s almost 3 years ago. Meanwhile, the company is paying healthy payout ratios and consistent AFFOs. Is there no room for an increase? - AI_AI - 2019-06-01 18:00:53 PDT

If you are interested in healthcare REITs, look into #HTA, according to them they are "the largest dedicated owner of medical offices." - LLNN - 2019-05-27 15:09:25 PDT

Hi Deadtom, I bought #SNH in 2017 and 2018 before I realized what a bad deal this REIT was, I paid between $16 to $18 per share and now they are worth $7-8. I should have done proper research on Senior Housing Properties Trust at the time and known to avoid them, but I didn't. I don't expect to recover my investment either in stock prices or dividend payments with them. SNH now cut their dividends from $0.39 to $0.15 per quarter, which was obvious it would happen since the FFO YoY had dropped from $0.50 to $0.35 and the dividends were not coverable for the last two quarters. So all this to say, that research any REIT carefully before getting excited about a sector, including the healthcare and senior housing care segment. - Kyuie - 2019-05-21 20:44:23 PDT

I sold my shares in #SNH today. I don’t plan to buy them again unless I see some serious changes in this company. - Omick99 - 2019-07-11 16:29:32 PDT
