Santa Barbara Luncheon Series - REIT Investing - A Health Care REIT Case Study
An assortment of sandwiches, salads, and drinks will be provided.
REITs have historically offered investors the benefits of commercial real estate investment along with the advantages of investing in a publicly traded stock. The special investment characteristics of income-producing real estate historically provide REIT investors with competitive long-term rates of return that complement the returns from other stocks and bonds. Additionally, REITs are total return investments. They typically provide relatively high dividends plus the potential for moderate, long-term capital appreciation as well as liquidity, portfolio diversification and strong corporate governance.
REITs own apartments, single-family home rentals, student housing, senior housing, health care and life science facilities, hotels, office and industrial buildings, shopping centers, timberland, farm land, data centers, cell phone towers, self-storage and more. Individual REITs typically specialize in one property type or industry, such as health care. This allows investors to individually weight various property types in their portfolio.
Pam will walk us through the nuances of health care REITs and the investment characteristics that distinguish this property type from others. Using LTC Properties, Inc. as a case study, we will explore the metrics and criteria investors use in evaluating a health care REIT.
