Senior Housing Properties Trust (SNH)

- NYSE
  • Tue, Aug. 11, 8:20 AM
    • The occupancy rate for all senior housing in 31 major markets fell this spring for the second consecutive quarter, reports Liam Pleven in the WSJ, and Dallas, Atlanta, and Chicago are among the cities where the number of new assisted-living units under construction represent more than 10% of the current inventory.
    • For the 31 major markets in total the figure is 6.4%; about four years ago it was just 3.4%.
    • "Everybody's thinking about these 10K baby boomers turning 65 every day," says one senior living executive, but that doesn't mean they're ready right away to move into senior communities. Alongside trouble finding renters - occupancy of 88.4% in Q2 was down 20 basis points from Q1 and 30 bps from a year ago - attempting to raise rents can also be an issue.
    • Among names of interest: Health Care REIT (NYSE:HCN), HCP, Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE:BKD), Ventas (NYSE:VTR), New Senior (NYSE:SNR), Senior Housing Properties (NYSE:SNH), LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC).

    • With Select Income REIT (NYSE:SIR) COO David Blackman presenting at NAREIT's REITWeek conference, investors are taking the opportunity to ask about yesterday's deal for SIR (along with other Portnoy-managed REITs) to take a stake in the Portnoys' RMR.
    • Webcast
    • "Who set the price on RMR," is naturally the first question, and "Did any independent party do a valuation opinion" is naturally the second.
    • RMR came to its REITs with a price, says Blackman, and the price was based upon 50% of the termination fees in the existing management contracts. As for question number two, Blackman says all the banks involved had a look, but it doesn't appear as if any outsiders were retained to help out.
    • "Why not just internalize management," is another natural question, and Blackman says RMR's scale allows for lower costs.
    • Other REITs involved: SNH, HPT, GOV

    • Aiming to quell investor concerns by more-aligning the interests of RMR Management and the REITs it manages, Senior Housing Properties (NYSE:SNH), Hospitality Properties (NYSE:HPT), Select Income REIT (NYSE:SIR), and Government Properties Trust (NYSE:GOV) are now the owners of about half of Reit Management & Research (RMR).
    • The management agreements will RMR are all extended for 20-year terms.
    • The REITs plan to distribute about half of their RMR shares to their shareholders, a move that will be facilitated by RMR's plan for a public listing.
    • The total purchase price was $172.8M, $46.4M of which was paid in cash and the rest in restricted common shares subject to 10-year lockups. The REITs now own 48.4% of  RMR.

    • A big move higher in interest rates continues, with the 10-year Treasury yield up another six basis points to 2.20% - roughly the level at which it started the year (it fell as low as 1.65% in early February).
    • The move here is small-time compared to what's going on across the pond, as the absurd levels of two weeks ago become somewhat less absurd. Ten-year Bund yields are up to 0.51% from 0.05%. Italian 10-years are up 30 bps today to 1.78%, with a similar move in Spain.
    • The IYR is down 1.1%.

    • The Fed earlier cuts its forecasts for GDP growth, inflation, and the pace of rate hikes. Alongside, it also lowered NAIRU - the level at which unemployment threatens accelerating inflation.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is lower by 13 basis points to 1.92% following the news, sending the board averages to near-1.5% gains, but the strongest names are the equity REITs.
    • IYR +2.3%
