  • These HealthCare REITs Are Ready For Buying After Up To A 20% Pullback [View article]
    Sir Money, thanks for the link, but that was an announcement on April 28. I'm wondering why NWH.UN has gone done in price and stayed down in price since April 2013.

    It used to trade around the P/FFO of 12, but it's trading closer to 9 now. So, either it's very cheap or there's something wrong.

    With regards to "why my comment to the name change shifted down". I'm afraid I don't have the answer to that, as that's specific to how Seeking Alpha implemented the commenting system.

    Thanks again,
    Canadian

    Freedom Bravo,

    It's possible to see more pull-back than 2%, more like 7% to 10%...of course not over the course of one day. Until then...? Until then, we can collect Ventas dividends. :)

    Thanks for all your comments and discussions.

    Some investors are anticipating REITs will get cut at least 8-10% when interest rate rise, and rightly so. We don't know how much interest rates will rise and we don't know when. So, my strategy is to dollar-cost average into quality REITs by adding on dips.

    Cheerios,

    Adam, thank you for bringing up the interest rates. You're absolutely right. When the interest rate goes up, the REITs will be affected negatively. And interest rates are at historical lows.

    One good thing about higher interest rates is that the REITs will use their retained earnings more carefully.

    Thanks,
    Canadian

    Sir Money and Beabaggage,

    First time I heard of those names. Thanks for sharing! They are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. If not listed on the US exchanges, it's much harder to get published on SA. Maybe OTC market ones are ok, but I haven't tried.

    Just whizzing them through quicky, NWH.UN has gone done and stayed down in price since April 2013. Will need to do some research on why though.

    Also, ITC's allowed ROE is 13.88%, still 3.88% higher than the state-regulated utilities. Although there is risk that the allowed ROE could continue to lower, the chance of it slipping under 10% is small.

    User 447425,

    I think I answered a part of your question in response to George above.

    In 2014, ITC started to roll out a 5-year capital investment plan of $4.5 billion from 2014 to 2018. For example, in 2014, "ITC delivered $794 million of capital investments, led by the completion of the Kansas V-Plan project at our ITC Great Plains subsidiary and significant progress on the Thumb Loop project at our ITCTransmission subsidiary." - source: http://bit.ly/1Pcq8hO

    Earnings should improve as the projects come into fruition, while shareholders need to be patient as the business grows in time.

    Thank you,
    Canadian

    George,

    Thanks for the question. I'm going to quote Morningstar on this: "We expect earnings growth to drop to about 10% annually during the next five years as ITC grows larger, incremental projects come in with lower allowed ROEs."

    Thanks,
    Canadian

    Sheepdip,

    I think you mean the ticker AQN. Thanks for the names. I've looked into ACO.X at a high level before, and looks like a good utility. It looks about fairly valued right now.
