Daily Stock Analysis: Sienna Senior Living

Sienna Senior Living Inc with the ticker (LWSCF) is a small-cap medical care facilities company  operating in the healthcare business sector. This is the second of five healthcare candidates competing for the forty-ninth slot in my Viital folio. It is my first  report on LWSCF for my Viital portfolio, or for any of my previous six portfolios.

Sienna Senior Living Inc is one of the largest owners of seniors' housing, the largest licensed long-term care operator in Ontario, and a provider of services across the full continuum of care.

The firm operates solely within Canada. The company is comprised of the following three main business segments, LTC Business, Retirement. and Other.

LTC business division consists of consists of 35 LTC residences in the Province of Ontario, eight seniors' living residences located in the Province of British Columbia and the LTC management services business.

Retirement segment includes 27 Retirement Residences (RR), five of which are located in the Province of British Columbia and 22 of which are located in the Province of Ontario, and the RR management services business.

The group derives majority of revenue from LTC segment.

The company was formerly known as Leisureworld Senior Care Corporation and changed its name to Sienna Senior Living Inc. in May 2015.

Sienna Senior Living Inc. was founded in 1972 and is headquartered in Markham, Canada.

Three key data points gauge any dividend equity or fund such as Sienna Senior Living Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Those three basic keys best tell whether any company has made, is making, and will make money.


Sienna’s price per share was $10.06 as of yesterday’s market close.  One year ago its price was $12.24. So, LWSCF’s share price fell by $2.18 or about 18% in the past year.

If Sienna’s stock trades in the range of $9.00 to $12.00 this next year, its recent $10.06 share price might rise by $1.44 to reach $11.50 by next year. My $1.44 upside estimate is about $0.12  under the average annual price increase over the past two years.

LWCSF Dividends

Sienna’s most recently declared monthly dividend of $0.06 is payable September 15th to shareholders on record as of August 30th.

Since June 2011 LWSCF has paid monthly dividends, which have varied from $0.07 to $0.06 over the years. The current forward looking annual dividend of $0.72 casts an annual yield 7.16% as of yesterday’s $10.06 share price.

LWSCF Returns

Adding the $0.72 LWSCF annual dividend to my estimated one-year price upside estimate of $1.44 shows a $2.16 potential gross gain, per share, to be reduced by any costs to trade LWSCF shares.

At yesterday's $10.06 closing price, a little under $1000 would buy 99 shares.

A $10 broker fee (if charged) would be paid half at purchase and half at sale and might cost us $0.10 per share.

Subtract that maybe $0.10 brokerage cost from my estimated $2.16 gross gain estimate per share results in a net gain of $2.06 X 99 shares = $203.94 for a 20.4% net gain including a 7.16% forward looking annual dividend yield.

Over the next year our $1K investment in Sienna Senior Living Inc shares could generate $71.60 in cash dividends. Of course, a single share of LWSCF stock bought at yesterday's $10.06 price is over 7 times less than the dividend income from our $1000.00 investment.

So, by my dogcatcher ideal, this is a positive time to acquire LWSCF shares based on their forward looking dividends for the year 2022. The forecast annual dividend from $1K invested is 7.12  times greater than yesterday’s single share price. Consider yourself alerted. Now is the time.

All of the estimates above are speculation based on the past history of Sienna Senior Living Inc. Only time and money invested in this stock will determine its market value.
