    turns out buying those beaten up teach stocks was a great idea, up 15% already on tsla and amzn. Back to this baby again and my dollar prediction was on the money.

    Would anyone suggest buying now or holding out for a bit because I’m just looking for a cheap stable dividend stock that I won’t really have to worry about

    For those who have held on:Operational UpdateThe REIT's portfolio of healthcare infrastructure assets continues to perform well through the COVID-19 pandemic with all properties open and operational. For the three months ended December 31, 2020 the REIT collected 98.3% of rent (including those subject to formal deferral arrangements), which is a 76 basis points improvement from the 97.6% collected in Q3 2020. The strong rent collection throughout the pandemic is illustrative of the defensive attributes of the REIT's portfolio, the essential nature of its tenant base and commitment from governments to ensure access to critical healthcare services. The REIT believes that a growing back log of non-essential treatments and surgeries in each of its global markets is expected to increase demand levels for acute healthcare services and support private hospital system volumes going forward.Transactional ActivitiesAs previously disclosed, during 2020 the REIT acquired a $620 million (�358 million) portfolio of ten high quality private hospitals in the UK leased to leading private hospital operators on a long-term, triple net, inflation indexed basis, at a weighted average acquisition capitalization rate of 6.5%. Since acquisition and during the COVID-19 pandemic, the REIT's UK portfolio has performed as expected with 100% rent collection underpinned by strong funding support from the National Heath Service. The REIT continues to see an approximate $85 million value creation opportunity as the UK portfolio acquisition cap rate stabilizes to market, generating an estimated 150 basis points of compression realized through: (i) tenant diversification and focus on top 5 UK private hospital operators; (ii) major market concentration; and, (iii) lease optimization. The REIT expects to complete these asset management initiatives in 2021 and continues to progress its discussions with potential partners in respect of its planned UK joint venture (the "UK JV") in parallel with a view to generating approximately $260 million in net proceeds from the sell down of its 100% interest in the portfolio in 2021.In Europe, the REIT sold four wholly owned Dutch Clinics in Q1 2021 to its recently established $3.1 billion (#$%$2.0 billion) joint venture (the "European JV") with GIC for $44.8 million (#$%$29.1 million). Also in the Netherlands, the REIT has agreed to acquire a 59,000 square foot life sciences building, 100% leased to a leading clinical research firm with a 19 year weighted average lease expiry ("WALE") for $24.3 million (#$%$15.8 million), representing a 5.9% initial capitalization rate. The property is located in Assen, NL.In Australia, the REIT together with a capital partner, has entered into option agreements to acquire a strategic interest of approximately 16% of the units in Australian Unity Healthcare Property Trust ("AUHPT"), a $2.3 billion (A$2.4 billion) unlisted healthcare property trust comprising 62 high quality hospital, medical centres and other healthcare assets leased to leading Australian healthcare operators with a WALE of 15.9 years and 98% occupancy. The agreements are subject to customary Australian foreign investment approvals.Balance Sheet InitiativesThe REIT has accelerated its 2021 refinancing plans and, to date, has either renewed, refinanced, or extended over 45% of its 2021 maturities with a path to repay and/or refinance the remaining normal course debt maturities. Additionally, the REIT has identified the following organic deleveraging opportunities:The cumulative impact of the transaction activity (including the completion of the REIT's planned UK JV) and the deleveraging initiatives outlined above is expected to reduce the REIT's proportionate leverage from 57.6% as at Q3 2020 to less than 50% and position the REIT's balance sheet for continued strategic growth.

    instead of everybody asking why are the shares dropping why don't you go and look on the website and you will find out they issued new shares at $12.65 which is a pretty significant discount what the shares were trading at... every time they do this I just buy more shares and then sell it when it goes up a buck and a half... they basically issue more shares based on what they expect the cash flow to increase so overall it ends up being a wash you will not get a massive price increase in the stock I mean this stock is not going up to $20 a share anytime within the next five years it will likely hit a high of around $15 or so but the dividend is safe so you will get a juicy $0.80 a year just to hold it plus maybe a little bit of capital appreciation but I wouldn't expect very much

    This has got to be the best dividend stock out there, and with such a great portfolio of properties in the medical field, I can’t see this going anywhere but up.

    Reason for uptickTORONTO, Feb. 7, 2020 /CNW/ - NorthWest Healthcare Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:NWH-UN.TO - News) (the "REIT") is pleased to announce an update on the REIT's key strategic initiatives including: (i) growth of the REIT's asset management platform with the formation of a new $3.0 billion (#$%$2.0 billion) European joint venture which increases Global capital commitments to $10.0 billion; (ii) European expansion into the United Kingdom with the acquisition of a $167.0 million (�97.8 million) six-hospital portfolio leased to BMI Healthcare Limited ("BMI") on a long term, triple net, inflation indexed basis; and, (iii) Australasian portfolio management initiatives targeted at simplifying its leading regional platform, providing a clear path to investment grade credit metrics.

    Very well managed company, with medical real estate, about 98% rented long term, with tenants more than capable of paying. And with more than 6% dividend. Very nice growth slope in the past 5 years. Quick recovery from COVID dip. What is there not to like?

    Is there any rational reason why this is down with the market? Are people expecting medical practices to default on their leases? I see the lower interest and higher medical needs as a benefit but would love to hear from a 🐻 to offer another opinion.

    Serious question, why would one invest in this stock? benefits of it? New to REIT's. Is it just for the dividend?
