I've wanted to increase my ownership of healthcare REITs, with OHI as my only holding here. I looked at Ventas (VTR) and HTA, both good candidates, but both a bit too pricey for me today. DOC is trading at a nice discount to fair value, so that is my pick. I bought a 1/2 position in the stock today at a price of $19.12 per share. The yield today is around 4.7%.
Here is the FASTGraph for DOC:
Regarding Lexington... they are having some issues financially, and while their long term prospects seem fine, I think it will be a year or two before the price really starts to appreciate. I've closed the position, and redeployed to DOC above.
