SIA-T vs. CSH.UN-T. It was sad what the pandemic has done in the long term care sector. Sienna has had to make some difficult management changes. This is an important needs-based sector in Canada. In Ontario the government has to look how they can properly fund that business. With question marks on the horizon, he would focus on CSH.UN-T because it does not depend on government finding as much. They have done a phenomenal job during the pandemic.

The whole industry is in the doghouse, because Covid attacks older people. Sienna followed all government regulations. Government needs to step up its standards and provide much more funding. He feels SIA is a good operator of retirement homes. Their dividend is safe. Aging demographics will feed demand in coming years. SIA pays over a 9% dividend yield that is sustainable. SIA is grossly undervalued. [Question: The CEO stepped down, the Canadian Army slammed Sienna in a report, there have been deaths by dehydration and malnutrition, hospitals have taken over three of its homes, and there's a lawsuit. So, aren't you downplaying the problems at Sienna?] Some of these are allegations need to be proven; retirement homes were particularly vulnerable to Covid; government regulations need to be beefed up; and ad luck may have been at play. He feels SIA handled most situations well, apart from a few exceptions--and this applies to the entire industry. (Analysts’ price target is $15.63)

People are now fishing for companies that were the most beaten up -- like airlines, etc. The long term thesis is still good for this space, but he sees other ways to play this. He would favour CSH.UN instead.

The retirement living space has been going through massive challenges in terms of COVID. You would have wanted to be in this sector before COVID due to demographics. It is safe to say that regulations will tighten in the space and it may be hard to maintain capital to fund them to meet the regulations. You will have to be careful.

She does not own Sienna. Their mix of long term care homes is much larger than others in the space. She has chosen Chartwell instead.

Just over half in long term care. They have been affected by the pandemic. They have protocols in place to deal with it and have done so effectively. This is a government funded business. It's not a discretionary service. Occupancy will remain very high. The distribution yield is safe and he thinks it is undervalued.

The 8% yield is covered by government payments. This sector has been trashed. Half their business is LTCs, so cash flow is guaranteed by government. So, the dividend is safe. Good balance sheet. Vacancy rates are up because of COVID, but will be absorbed by aging demographics. This sector is very cheap compared to multi-residential REITs. The LTC side of their operation is government-regulated, though provinces need to do a better job of oversight for LTCs as a whole. In the future, there will be much better levels of service and supervision, which may add to costs. The government will absorb these costs, though. (Analysts’ price target is $17.00)

Not a lot of growth. 65% payout ratio. Balance sheet is not bad. Good valuation. Down because it's not the most liquid stock, and there's a flight to quality. Investors are rotating out of REITs into cyclicals. In markets like this, everything goes to cash or to high quality. Yield is 6.3%.

It operates in the healthcare sector. Half the earnings are from long term care. It is a great asset glass. There is a great supply of seniors waiting to get in. It has a nice dividend yield.

He likes the company. On a larger theme, they will benefit from the retirement home trend and are subsidized by the government. The industry is ripe for consolidation. He also likes the dividend. Yield 5%

He also owns Chartwell, another seniors' home stock. It's a demographic play on seniors' homes. Pays a dividend over 4%. The fundamentals for this sector--a shortage of beds for seniors--beg for investment. (Analysts’ price target is $20.50)

Chose Chartwell, as it's the largest in Canada. If you own it, keep holding. Chartwell trades at a premium, and she knows management.

He does not own this one. There will be more senior needs going forward, so they are well positioned. A positive longer term story. He owns different REITs instead. Watch were interest rates are going as changes in expectations can change valuations. A good investment for the long term time horizon.

Defensive REIT that pays income. Nursing and retirement homes, mostly in Ontario (where there is a bed shortage of 35,000) and BC. Strong managers and good dividend. He expects the Ontario government will solve this shortage by mid-2020 (allow more nursing homes) that will benefit Sienna and CSH.UN-T. This is very defensive. You can sleep at night owning this.
