    Most of the horses have left the barn. You are right. Way too late with their sell

    Yet other analysts have OHI at buy.


    Everyone must do his own due diligence and in accordance with his own individual situation.

    I just bought it. Looks good to me. They downgraded because of worry about billing and collections under the new health care fiasco. I bought because of good financials, good dividend and coverage and good prospects.

    At about 25% off its highs and a steadily growing dividend, the last thing I will do is sell OHI. I've had this for several year now and plan to keep adding. This is retirement income for me and my horizon is 30 years.

    I love it when analysts downgrade solid, profitable companies.

    I don't when I own those companies. (Fortunately, I own no REITs.)
