It's a real estate play on medical facilities in the US. It was overleveraged a few years ago, then COVID declined their business, which are non-essential surgeries. But they're still profitable and paying dividends. He sees upside.

He is always very suspicious of a company with all of its assets in the US that lists on a Canadian exchange. Medical facilities in the US are a different market from the Canadian one. We've seen similar companies in the US where it didn't end well.

They have surgical facilities in the US. It was trading for the dividend and then things fell off the rails and they cut the dividend. He was concerned that something was wrong. They made an asset sale recently to try to clean things up. Let the shareholder base switch over and let things settle.

He owned it because of the big dividend yield. Management was always optimistic about the hospital being built in South Dakota and thought because they had a lot of other facilities it might mitigate the situation. They told us the last two quarters that everything was fine but now we find it is not.

A classic avoid stock. The chart has plummeted this year. The trendline (past low) was taken out with several breakdowns and consolidations (several drops).

Medical facilities. He has been short the stock. They have facilities in North Dakota. Another group of doctors opened up their own facilities down the street. He is not sure how safe the dividend is.

Three quarters in a row of disappointing results. Made a very dramatic dividend cut. Yield is now around 4%. Stock is bouncing in the $4-5 range. Owns medical building in the States. Debt to equity ratio is not too severe. Suspects they will be able to paydown debt now. Disappointing story but continues to hold it. Hasn't decided to buy more yet. Would like to see a couple more quarters and see if the business stabilizes.

He has had grief with this over the years. It only trades at 13 times earnings and a great yield but a payout ratio of 167%. It has missed earnings. Although it is cheap, it does not have good price momentum. Yield 14%

He doesn't cover it, but DR had a disastrous quarter and the wheels came off. He doesn't understand the reason why. He's scared of it. Also, their debt is high. Pays a 14% dividend which likely isn't safe.

They have a strong balance. The dividend is fine. But the issues revolve around their clinics. A new public hospital has stolen some business in South Dakota, and DR had two quarters. He averaged down this year and comfortable to hold it. But he'll keep an eye on the next quarter.

He owns this and tries to buy it under $14 and selling over $16, while collecting a fat dividend. Their recent earnings were less profitable and the company says things will improve going forward. In South Dakota there could be competitive pressure as a large hospital facility has been built. He thinks there is no end of demand for users. He would buy here.

Did they raise the dividend just to keep investors interested, and is that 9.28% yield stable? Their payout ratio is beyond 100%, a concern. He has owned this in the past. They missed earnings. Decent valuation at 5x EBITDA and cash flow. Balance sheet is okay. They might be able to maintain that dividend. The stock price is a challenge--can it rise? And they need a highly valued stock in order to be a growth-by-acqusition stock. (He isn't aware of a dividend increase, though.)

He sold it around $16-17, but still owns it. He would add more shares now. Their Q1 numbers were poor with low Medicare reimbursement rates. The street is worried about new competition. Look at the next earnings, which could boost the stock.

The 12% drop on May 9 has continued and not recovered. Markets have a lot of concern about the dividend. Be very careful. Reduce your position for sure. If it drops below $12, could really tumble. Lots of risk right here. Volume is weak.

They had a weak quarter. People are worried about the debt level which is high. He likes the business model. It will work out over the long term. He will probably buy in 2-3 months when he gets more comfortable with the situation.
