E Daily Stock Pick: Healthcare Trust Of America

I'm now 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 another mid-cap healthcare facilities real estate investment trust, Healthcare Trust of America Inc Its trading ticker symbol is HTA.

Healthcare Trust of America Inc is a real estate investment trust that owns and operates medical office buildings in the United States. The company generates all of its revenue in the United States. HTA is the largest dedicated owner and operator of Medical Office Buildings in the United States, comprising approximately 23.2 million square feet of space, with $6.8 billion invested  HTA provides real estate infrastructure for the integrated delivery of healthcare services in highly-desirable locations. Investments are targeted to build critical mass in 20 to 25 leading gateway markets that generally have leading university and medical institutions, these strategic markets show strong long-term demand for quality medical office space.

Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, HTA was Founded in 2006 and listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2012.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like Healthcare Trust of America Inc (HTA):

(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.

HTA Price

HTA's price per share was $25.28 yesterday. A year ago its price was $30.06. So price dropped $4.78 per share last year, or almost 16%.
