E Daily Stock Pick: Senior Housing Property Trust

This week, I'm looking for a second stalwart healthcare sector representative for my new Ivy portfolio.

That healthcare sector includes ten industries all related to testing, diagnosing and treating what ails us. Healthcare industries are: biotechnology; diagnostics & research; drug manufacturers - major and - specialty & generic; healthcare plans; long-term care facilities; medical care; medical devices; medical distribution; medical supplies.

Today I'm reviewing a mid-cap healthcare facilities real estate investment trust, Senior Housing Properties Trust Its trading ticker symbol is SNH.

Senior Housing Properties Trust is a real estate investment trust. It owns and operates independent living and assisted living communities, continuing care retirement communities and nursing homes throughout the United States. SNH is managed by the operating subsidiary of The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR), or RMR Inc., an alternative asset management company that is headquartered in Newton, MA.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like Senior Housing Properties Trust:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, four more keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest. But those first three primary keys, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.

SNH Price

SNH's price per share was $11.94 at yesterday's market close. A year ago its price was $19.22 for a price drop of $7.28 per share for the year, or a 37.9% annual tumble.

Assuming SNH's stock will trade in the range of $9 to $21 next year, SNH's recent $11.94 price could recover by $0.58 and grow to $12.50 by late-December, 2019.

SNH Dividends

SNH's most recent monthly dividend was $0.39 declared October 18th and paid out, November 15th. That $0.39 quarterly stipend equates to an annual amount of $1.56 yielding 13% at yesterday's closing $11.95 price.

Gains For SNH?
