MPW is an interesting bite-size investment opportunity. Shares of the Reit also known as Medical Properties Trust go for between 8 and 10 dollars a piece. It yields roughly .8 dollars a year in dividend. Seems like a pretty solid deal to me. In addition to this good face value price, it also might be worthwhile to consider that MPW has total assets of 1.62 billion, and shares outstanding of 110.65 million. Shares Outstanding/ Total Assets, gives us 14.64. I know this is kind of a rough figure per se, but it seems as though it might be fair to say that at 8-10 dollars a share, and with enough assets to cover 14, all the while paying a .8 dollar dividend, well that this might be a good deal. If it continues to collect more assets under its umbrella, this wouldnt hurt the above ratio either, in fact its already decent so it would seem as though there would be little place to go but up.
