PE ratio this high is a red flag on the surface. He’d be reluctant to own the high PE multiple in a sector where other companies have lower multiples. Own another one, or own a few to diversify. Can’t tell if high PE due to price too high, or a one-time hit to earnings.

Demographically, it’s a theme, but you have to ignore this. Had stayed away because of litigation in the US. Missed earnings. Difficult business because of labour costs, regulations. Other investments make sense and aren’t as complicated. Analysts have downgraded. Trades at an 18x multiple. If you’re going to buy, have to buy it washed out. (Analysts’ price target is $16.65.)

(A Top Pick July 12, 2017. Up 5%). She continues to like Chartwell. This is the leader in seniors housing in Canada. She likes the demographic trend. Chartwell provides the full spectrum of living and care arrangements, including long-term care, which is fully regulated and which constitutes 15% of their business. Occupancy is very high. They grow organically and by acquisition. She likes the management. Rising interest rates have created a headwind for the stock price, but it offers an adequate yield.

This trend in demographics is going to benefit this company. He has not bought it and there is a better situation elsewhere in the REIT space. We don't have enough nursing home beds. The issue they have is the land grab in the neighborhoods where people want to move from. This is people moving from homes they own into facilities they rent. He has TCN-T as it is a slightly better investment.

Have held it for a number of years and continue to like it. Would be buyers at these levels below $15. Demographics favour this industry. Most of their revenue comes from private pay, not government. Offer all levels of care -- long term, assisted living, independent living. Strong and experienced management team. Good organic growth plus acquisitions. Company got out of the US; feel they have enough opportunities for growth in Canada. Yield about 4%.

Demographics work in their favour: everyone is getting older so there'll be more demand for assisted-care living. Management is good. Offers a dividend near 4% which will be safe and has been increasing slowly over time. This is a long-term hold; she's held it for five years. The recent pull-back is due to rising interest rates. (Analysts' price target $17.00)

This is a demographic play. The stock hasn't done too much in the past 3-6 months where we have seen the overall market rally. Just did an equity issue at $15.20, to retire some debt as well as to fund an Alberta acquisition. Dividend yield of 3.7%. This is the largest Canadian operator in seniors housing. Very good operators and have a good pipeline of organic projects as well as some of their M&A. (Analysts' price target is $17.)

Runs a variety of retirement homes and long-term care facilities in Canada. Ranks 258 out of 700 stocks. Analysts are bumping up their numbers, but he doesn’t think the stock is inexpensive at this point. Free cash flow is negative at -3.3%. There are other investment income companies he would prefer.

One of those defensive stocks, and of course the secular trend works; aging demographics, baby growers retiring. Chart shows the stock is in an up channel. Take your profits at the top of the channel and maybe buy when it is at the bottom of the channel. You are in a very good space on this one.

Key factors you focus on when assessing this kind of company?He tries to look at management, assets, payout ratios and liabilities. When evaluating any REIT, the most important thing is going to be demand and supply. It really affects the ability of management teams to increase occupancy and increase rents. For this one, seniors housing is very operationally intensive, and they benefit from being one of the largest players in Canada. Having national presence gives them the opportunity to purchase things a little cheaper, manage properties more effectively and to increase occupancy in case of a decline. He likes this company. There are very favourable demographic tailwinds that will benefit them going forward.

Seniors’ homes is a growth market. There is not going to be enough places for baby boomers to retire, and this is a great way to participate. This has been weak lately on the basis of rising interest rates, which has hurt a lot of REITs. Ultimately, you own a hard asset with an ability to raise its prices down the road. Not a bad place to be.

The largest provider of seniors housing communities in Canada. In the last couple of weeks, this has gone from $16 to almost $15, which is why she chose it. Everyone is getting older and living longer. It is still a very fragmented market, and this is the leader in the space. Dividend yield of 3.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $16.75.)

The number of people globally, over 65 years of age, will probably double over the next 20-25 years. That increase will result in more demand for retirement housing. This company should really benefit, provided you don’t see a material increase in supply. Not particularly cheap and is probably fairly valued here. Senior Housing is probably amongst the most operationally intensive asset class in commercial real estate. Great management team. He would probably look elsewhere. Dividend yield of 3.6%.

Has no exposure to REITs because of valuations. Also, these names are ultrasensitive to even a whisper of interest rates going up. Any time you buy into an asset class that has done as well as REITs, combined with how sensitive they are to interest rate movements, it is a risky proposition. However, this one is top of class.

A big fan of management and their story. People are getting older and need someone to take very good care of them, and this is a very good operator. The real estate component looks very attractive as well. The stock is fairly valued, perhaps a little bit rich, but he continues to hold at these levels. If there was a significant real estate correction, this company would be affected along with others in senior residences. 3.7% dividend yield.

High-quality. Everyone understands the business and everyone understands age demographics. The service this company provides is going to continue to be in demand. What has helped them, is what he believes is hurting them at this point. Some of the names such as this have seen a real inflow of capital, so are trading at all-time high multiples. When there is a correction, it tends to be quite sharp. Too expensive at this time. Dividend yield of 3.8%.

She has owned it for quite a number of years. It is the largest seniors housing player in Canada. She likes the demographics play. The company sold off all their US properties and they have been developing and re-investing the money. It has a 3.5% yield. It has been strong over the past three weeks. She would not buy it here, but hold it. Wait for a pullback if you want to imitate a position.

Has an issue with REITs in general. He doesn’t see much growth. A lot of people really love this one. It is the positioning and the growth in their health care facilities. He gets that, but his problem is the valuation. It is basically trading at 16X enterprise value to EBITDA. You are paying an extremely high multiple, which is a bit at risk if interest rates start to go higher. He wouldn’t be buying any REITs.

As a longer-term stock with a nice dividend and growth profile, this certainly meets his parameters. There is more and more population that is aging, and will end up in these assisted-living and long-term care facilities that they run. They’ve been very good at both building new facilities and acquiring them. They also know the right time to sell.
