3 Healthcare REITs for Supercharged Yields

Posted by D4L | Saturday, September 16, 2017 | | 1 comments »

They already have been, in fact. A number of healthcare REITs have been sporting mouth-watering dividend yields over 7%. Compared to 10-year U.S. Treasury Notes yielding just over 2%, these opportunities look mighty fine — especially with the healthcare industry demand and supply so skewed in the supplier’s favor. Take this statistic in for measure: In 2010, the number of seniors in the U.S. totaled 40 million, representing 13% of the population. By 2030, the number is expected to reach 71 million, or 19.7% of the population. Many will not be able to be completely independent, rendering precisely the need that healthcare REITs fill.

At a $4.6 billion market cap, Senior Housing Properties Trust (NASDAQ:SNH) is on the larger side of the well-diversified healthcare REITs universe. Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE:MPW) is a highly acquisitive healthcare REIT focused on hospitals. Sabra Health Care REIT Inc (NASDAQ:SBRA) recently completed the merger with Care Capital Properties, Inc. (formerly traded on the NYSE under the ticker CCP) in an all-stock transaction.

    We'll see how SBRA will perform. It just entered my portfolio via the CCP merger. I have no plans to sell nor buy at this point. Just wait and see.
