3 Healthcare REITs Yielding More Than 5%

Healthcare REITs have dramatically underperformed the broader market over the last 12 months due to the impact of the coronavirus crisis on their business. However, investors should not dismiss these stocks, particularly given that the broad market has doubled off its bottom last year and is now trading at a rich valuation level.

While healthcare REITs are currently hurt by the pandemic, they benefit from a strong secular trend, namely the aging of the U.S. population.

7 Coronavirus Stocks to Buy in Case of Lockdown 2.0

Therefore, investors with a long-term perspective should take advantage of the cheap valuation of these stocks right now. In this article, we will analyze the prospects of three healthcare REITs that have high dividend yields above 5%.

Here are three high-yield healthcare REITs to consider:

Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI)

LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC)

LTC Properties (NASDAQ:SBRA)

Omega Healthcare Investors generates over 80% of its revenues from skilled nursing facilities, and the remainder of its revenues from senior housing developments. It is the largest landlord of skilled nursing facilities in the U.S., with 954 properties.

Omega was significantly affected by the coronavirus crisis, as its occupancy declined 11% between the onset of the pandemic and January-2021. However, thanks to the massive rollout of vaccines, the business landscape has improved this year. The contagion rate within skilled nursing facilities has plunged approximately 95% since the peak of the pandemic while occupancy has improved by 3%.

Early signs of a recovery were evident in the latest earnings report of Omega. Its revenue rose 0.4% over last year’s quarter while its funds from operations per share grew 5%, from $0.81 to $0.85. It is also remarkable that the REIT collected 98% of its rental income in the second quarter and 99% of its rental income in July. Thanks to its ongoing recovery from the pandemic, Omega is on track to grow its funds from operations per share by 5% this year.

As soon as the pandemic subsides, investors will focus on the strong secular trend that supports the business of Omega, namely the aging of the U.S. population. Baby boomers began turning 75 in 2016 while the 65+ age population is expected to grow from 17% of the total U.S. population in 2020 to 21% by 2030 and 22% by 2040. This trend will greatly benefit the business of Omega, as there will be increased demand for skilled nursing facilities.

Even better for the REIT, the growth in the demand for these facilities will outpace the supply of these facilities due to certificate of need (CON) and bed moratorium restrictions. Certified facilities have remained flat for many years, with no new net supply. Overall, Omega has promising growth prospects in the long run.

Notably, Omega has raised its dividend for 17 consecutive years and currently offers a 7.8% dividend yield. Omega’s payout ratio is approximately 78% as expected for 2021, which is reasonable in the REIT universe. In addition, Omega has well-laddered debt maturities. It also has long-term leases with its operators, with an average duration of 9.0 years.

Given also that there are minimal lease expirations until 2026, Omega is likely to enjoy reliable cash flows over the next five years. As a result, its 7.8% dividend should be considered safe in the absence of a major recession.

LTC Properties invests in senior housing and skilled nursing properties. Its portfolio consists of approximately 50% senior housing and 50% skilled nursing properties. The REIT owns 180 properties in 27 states with 30 operating partners.

LTC Properties is facing a strong headwind due to the pandemic, which has put the operators of the properties of the REIT under great pressure. In the second quarter, the funds from operations per share of LTC properties decreased 25% and missed analysts’ consensus by 11%. Senior Lifestyle, an operator of some properties, did not pay for its lease obligations during the quarter and thus hurt the results of the REIT.

On the other hand, as soon as the effect of the pandemic begins to attenuate, LTC Properties will benefit from the aging of the U.S. population. This growth results from the aging of the generation of baby boomers and the consistent rise of life expectancy thanks to sustained progress in medical sciences.

LTC Properties has most of its properties in states with the highest projected increases in the 80+ population cohort over the next decade. Given also that this age category has by far the greatest spending power, the population growth in this category will greatly benefit LTC Properties in the long run.

LTC Properties has raised its dividend at a 3.7% average annual rate over the last decade and is now offering a 6.5% dividend yield.

In addition, LTC Properties has proved more vulnerable to the pandemic than Omega Healthcare Investors. Consequently, while LTC Properties has the financial power to maintain its dividend, the dividend carries a bit more risk, particularly in the event of a prolonged pandemic.

High-Yield Healthcare REITs: Sabra Health Care REIT (SBRA) tiny house figures atop letter blocks spelling out REIT, representing reits to buy. stock predictionsSource: Shutterstock

Sabra Health Care REIT owns approximately 470 properties, which are predominantly skilled nursing/traditional care facilities leased to operators under triple-net leases, which require the tenant to pay all real estate taxes, building insurance and maintenance.

Just like the other healthcare REITs, Sabra has been hurt by the pandemic. In the second quarter, its funds from operations per share dipped 5% over last year’s quarter. Due to the sustained impact of the pandemic on its business, Sabra is poised to report an approximate 10% decrease in its funds from operations per share this year.

On the bright side, the REIT has collected 99.8% of its forecasted rental income since the onset of the pandemic. While it has offered minimal rent deferrals, it has not granted any permanent concessions. Moreover, it has received material financial aid from the government, as its facilities are considered critical.

As soon as the coronavirus crisis disappears from the horizon, Sabra is likely to return to growth mode thanks to the aforementioned secular tailwind from the aging of the U.S. population. The 75-plus population cohort is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the population, while average life expectancy is expected to rise from 79.4 years in 2015 to 81.7 years by 2030.

Due to the pandemic, Sabra cut its dividend by 33% early last year. Nevertheless, it is still offering an attractive 7.4% dividend yield. The REIT has a reasonable payout ratio of 75%, a strong interest coverage ratio of 5.2 and it has reduced its leverage ratio (net debt to EBITDA) from 5.69 in 2018 to 4.84. Therefore, its reduced dividend should be considered safe in the absence of a prolonged pandemic.

Final Thoughts

Healthcare REITs are out of favor lately due to the impact of the coronavirus on their operations. Such temporary headwinds usually present great investing opportunities. Those who believe that the pandemic will subside soon will be highly rewarded by locking in the attractive yields of the above three healthcare REITs.

Omega’s nearly 8% dividend yield makes it the most attractive of the 3 healthcare REITs here, thanks to the superior resilience of this REIT during the pandemic as well as its superior balance sheet.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN) jumped just shy of 17% last month, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The entire share-price increase was compressed into the last week of February as investors anticipated the company’s fourth-quarter 2018 earnings conference call on the second to last day of the month. Analysts knew revenue growth would continue to chug along as sales of Vascepa continue to grow — and they were right.

    Stocks that skyrocket by nearly 500% in less than 12 months aren’t normally bargains. Far from it. But the mid-cap biopharma Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN) could be one of the few exceptions to this general rule of thumb.

    Rotonti: Cadence Design Systems (NASDAQ:CDNS) is a company I’ve been researching, and it’s currently one of my high-conviction ideas. I like the company because it has a long-term focused CEO who owns about $100 million in company stock. Cadence also has net cash of $88 million, organic growth driven by the long-term trend toward digitization, improving return on assets (ROA) and return on invested capital (ROIC), and massive free cash flows (FCF) with a five-year average FCF/net income of 1.72 and average FCF margins of 21%. According to S&P Global, in 2018 Cadence generated a ROIC of 15% and used an appropriate amount of debt, which helped boost returns on equity (ROE) to 30%. Importantly, it has a culture of investing in R&D which has led to 20 new product releases in only the last three years. Is there anything else Parnassus likes about Cadence that I’m missing, and can you briefly describe what Parnassus likes from an ESG perspective?

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019

The market is at or near all-time highs, but it won’t stay there forever. There will, eventually, be a bear market. The time to prepare for that is now, when you can think rationally and not act out of fear. That’s why you should be looking at blue chip utility stocks like Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK) and Dominion Energy, Inc. (NYSE:D). When the market turns, their high yields and well-defined spending plans will help you ride out the storm.

1. Big and boring

Duke Energy is one of the largest domestic electric and natural gas utilities, with a $56 billion market cap. The stock currently yields around 4.75%, more than twice the yield offered by an S&P 500 Index fund. The dividend has been increased every year for 14 consecutive years. At the end of the day, there’s nothing particularly sexy about Duke Energy. But that’s exactly why it is such a great stock — it provides the basic necessities that fuel a modern society.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019: Yum! Brands, Inc.(YUM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Shares of Yum China (NYSE:YUMC) — the exclusive Chinese licensee of KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell that was spun off from Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM) a few years ago — rallied after the company recently reported a better-than-feared report for the fourth quarter of 2018. Investors have been fretting that a slowdown in the world’s second-biggest economy would hurt restaurant operators, and it’s true that Yum China has slowed down as of late. Growth is growth, though, and the fast-food chain was able to deliver solid bottom-line numbers.

    Yum China Holdings (NYSE: YUMC) was spun off from Yum Brands (NYSE: YUM) in 2016 but remains a trademark licensee of the original company. China accounted for 27% of KFC system sales with growth of 9% last year versus a decline of 1% in U.S. sales. For Pizza Hut, China accounted for 17% of global sales with 7% growth year-over-year.

    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
