The Contrary Investing Report > NASDAQ:SBRA

The average American can’t afford to retire.

At the moment, the median balance among those 65 and older is $58,035, according to CNBC.  Averaged over a 20-year period, that’s only $2,901.75 a year. Worse, the median private pension is $9,376.  Social security averaged just over $1,400 a month in 2018.

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone that can live on that.

What makes the situation far more difficult is the state of the stock market.

It’s not as if you can depend on your average stock anymore.

With the trade war escalating, it’s been a confusing time for investors.

Contradictory claims from both sides have given way to extreme optimism, and pure grief when all goes south. … Read more

Dividends or growth? Why choose?

There’s a widespread belief that stocks and funds can deliver red-hot capital gains or substantial income, but not both. Fortunately for us that’s not true.

It is possible to collect big dividends and capital appreciation. I’m going to show you how to safely collect 32% in total returns in less than a year from a big dividend payer. And while this “easy dividend money” has been made, we’ll discuss three more stocks yielding around 8%-9% that can deliver 20%+ in dividends and upside over the next twelve months..

Income investors like you and me should focus on total returns, which are made up of dividends and price appreciation.… Read more

Each June, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) hosts a conference that brings all of the key players in the sector together. For REIT investors, it’s the equivalent of the Super Bowl and it offers a window into who’s poised to perform well in the second half of the year and beyond.

This year, the focus in real estate remains about mergers and acquisitions, as small- and mid-range companies are combining to better compete with the larger players. Even the REITs that plan to go it alone for the time being are raising capital by selling non-core assets, with private equity and foreign capital bidding up prices.…

Many investors think they must choose between income and growth.

Why not have both?

Many stocks offer varying degrees of growth and income, and in a few rare cases – such as the three stocks yielding between 7% and 9% that I’m going to share with you today – they offer high levels of both.

When we talk about “growth,” we can mean any number of metrics. It can be as simple as sales, but that’s far from the only metric that matters.

The growth I want to look at today is on the bottom line. A company can grow sales all day by spending inordinate amounts of money on marketing and R&D.…

Buying real estate investment trusts isn’t like buying other stocks; despite their high yields and big long-term returns, REITs require a bit more attention and a bit faster action than more popular dividend-payers, like blue chips and dividend-growth stocks.

But it’s more than just speed and care. To win with REITs, you need to follow three rules—and I’m going to show you those today.

These REIT rules have never been more important than they are now. Broadly, REITs are getting more valuable, but the market is getting more scared of them. This disconnect makes no sense and is partly the reason why two extremely healthy and valuable REITs—Sabra Health Care REIT (SBRA) and Care Capital Properties (CCP) recently merged.

In their announcement, both firms said the merger would save $20 million in costs annually, provide greater diversification and give the new company more cash for expansion. …
