Sabra REIT’s 9.2% Yield: Moved by Low Rates and Healthcare Headwinds

Here is a look at the market’s continuing strong performance this year (the S&P 500 is up 16.6%). REITS are one sector that’s been particularly strong (XLRE is up 19.1%) as the Fed’s new found dovish low interest rate posture helps REITs which generally rely on borrowing to grow. On the other hand, healthcare is one sector that has lagged (XLV is up only 4.2%) as this diverse sector faces varying specific pressures. Sabra Healthcare (SBRA) is a big dividend REIT that faces its own company-specific pressures as well as the headwinds of being a healthcare related company and the tailwinds of being a REIT. This week’s Blue Harbinger Weekly reviews the market’s performance, the performance of our portfolio holdings, and briefly reviews a few specific names, one of which is our opinion on Sabra Healthcare’s tempting 9.2% dividend yield.
