  • Schorsch Creates More Magic, This Time It's Health Care [View article]
    Brad ... Another very insightful article !! .... Gives a lot of food for thought.

    I do not like externally managed REITS. Also as mentioned by a commenter above,
    I am not so sure about Senior housing ... The government; plus, baby boomers are still too young to go into Senior Housing, especially Skilled Nursing.

    Brad .. Could you tell me more about the HCT's Senior housing .. How many properties are Assisted Living versus Skilled Nursing?

    I am really looking forward to the Sustainability Grade in your upcoming Newsletter. This should be very helpful !!!

  • Can Healthcare Trust Of America Withstand A Lickin' And Keep On Tickin'? [View article]
    Brad .. Thank you for another insightful article ..

    I am really pleased that you are giving a "Sustainability Grade" to stocks in your Newsletter !! It will be most helpful for me.
    Including both an Entry Price and a Target Price would also be most helpful.

  • American Realty: 7%-Yielder Continues To Deliver [View article]
    I really appreciate your tremendous knowledge and insight in all of your articles !!!
    Every day, I type in your name and look for your articles.

    I already held a nice positions in ARCP (2 in mid $12.50 range plus 1 at $12.80).
    I really wanted to add to my position but was "on the fence". After reading your article on ARCP from about a month ago, I moved "off the fence" and added to my position at $13.05. I am so glad that I did !! Thank You :) !!

    I believe that Schorsch will come through and take ARCP forward with significant progress.

  • Up Close With This Pure Play Hospital REIT CEO [View article]
    Great article, Brad .. Thank you!!!

    My concern as a Newsletter subscriber is if we are not SA PROS (which I am not), there are articles written as recently as 3 months ago, and we are not allowed to see them here. And, there is nowhere else that we can see them ... probably due to a contract for authors with SA.

    I print a lot of Brad's articles .. but not all of them ... They are pretty long :).

    I have learned so much from Brad and greatly appreciate him.

    By the way, HTA is an Equity REIT, not a Mortgage REIT.

  • Power Up Your Portfolio With This Power Center REIT [View article]
    Thanks for another great article, Brad !!

    At the moment, DDR looks like a pass to me. Considering the dividend in relation to price of the stock, I believe that a better entry price would be around $14.

    I am looking forward to your upcoming Newsletter !

  • No Margin Of Safety In FedEx, But What About A FedEx Landlord? [View article]
    I've owned GOOD for over a year. I am retired, so I have been able to watch daily trends with all of my stocks. GOOD has a great dividend .. and has always recovered capitol a few days after a down days on the market. I have watched GOOD go down to the mid $17 range and now is sitting around the $18.30 range. Due to watching past performance almost daily, I would not be surprised to see GOOD go back (up) to the $18.50 to low $19.00 range.
    The thing about GOOD is that they may go up or down but have maintained a pretty stable price range over the past year ... Look at the "Divy" ... $.125 per MONTH :).
    I am very pleased with GOOD and am not sure why Brad rarely comments on it .. It could be that Brad considers GOOD to be author Dane Bowler's stock ..
    Not sure, but GOOD has done very well for us :).
    Best of luck !!
