    • Omega Healthcare (OHI) announces a secondary offering of $75M of common stock (choosing to put a dollar amount, rather than number of shares on the press release; the stock's trading around $30 - the math says it'll be about 2.5M shares). The underwriters get a greenshoe option to buy up to another $11.25M of the newly issued common.
    • The stock's off 2.15% AH.

    • Normalized FFO of $0.62/share makes the earnings beat a less-gaudy $0.02.
    • FY2013 FFO guidance upped to $2.48-$2.51 per share and Funds Available for Distribution (FAD) to $2.23-$2.26.
    • Earnings call is just underway. (PR)
    • Investors take the seemingly solid report as an excuse to lighten up after a nice run for the stock YTD. OHI -3.1%.
    • Earlier: Earnings report.

    • HCP (HCP -2.2%) slips for a 2nd day despite upping guidance in its earnings report as dour earnings call (transcript) comments from CEO Jay Flaherty are digested
    • The "pause" button for deals was hit by Bernanke's post-FOMC June comments and the subsequent fixed-income turbulence, says Flaherty, and it remains to be seen how quickly things start moving again.
    • Funding costs have gone up, but sellers' expectations of what their properties are worth haven't changed - not a good combination for getting business done.
    • Others of note: Senior Housing Properties (SNH -2.2%), Medical Properties Trust (MPW -1.8%), Omega Healthcare (OHI -1.5%).

    Similar to a pattern seen a few times over the past few weeks, underneath a solid rally in the averages are big declines in a number of income favorites. The culprit again is falling Treasury prices, the long bond off more than a full point and yielding 3.32%. Some popular equity REITs: Equity Residential (EQR -1.3%), AvalonBay (AVB -1.4%), HCP (HCP -1.6%), Realty Income (O -2.6%), Senior Housing (SNH -2.9%), Omega Healthcare (OHI -1.3%), Government Properties (GOV -2%). Also: Continued rout in mREITs.

    Aviv REIT (AVIV) is up 15% from its Thursday IPO, with SA Pro author Dane Bowler suggesting the stock as a play for healthcare REIT fans looking for better values after the big move higher in OHI.  Don't be put off by a current price-FFO ratio of 14.39, he says, as this excludes $251M dollars from the IPO which have yet to be invested as well as much benefit from the company's 2012 acquisitions.
