HCN after the Second Quarter September 9, 2010

One of my three core holdings is Health Care REIT.  After the second quarter here are my thoughts.

Well on there way to $2B in investments for the year is a great sign

They had the highest interest volume ever this last quarter

The partnership with Merrill Gardens is an excellent addition

Private pay is up to 77% of the portfolio

They continue with their strategy of lowering free-standing nursing homes; down to 14%

Entrance fees are starting to recover with some of the deferred fees being paid off

Medical Office Buildings have a 93% occupancy

FFO up to $.80

Dividend up to $.67 and expected to further rise in the near future

It made it through the recession very well.  The future looks very positive at this point.

The price went up 6% year to date.  With a 5.85% yield it is a little pricy at this point.  However, I am now watching closely and will consider adding to my position over the next quarter.

I still am very high on this equity and it will remain one of my core holdings with my yield on cost over 11%.
