Q: NWH.UN's proposed purchase of Australian Unity Healthcare: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/northwest-healthcare-properties-real-estate-investment-trust-announces-2-6bn-proposal-to-acquire-australian-unity-healthcare-property-trust-884830846.html

Earlier 5i had summarized NWHs last results as "cash flow per unit of 20 cents missed estimates of 22 cents. 98.6% of rent was collected. Revenue was unchanged at $92.6M. Payout ratio 97% (87% normalized). Occupancy 97%. Assets rose 16.2%. Net asset value increased 2%. Leverage ratios declined. Considering covid, we would consider it a fairly decent quarter overall." and have ranked it fairly "low risk" as REITS go.

What impact, if any, do you feel if it's bid (if approved ) to acquire Australian Unity Healthcare Property Trust (at a 16% premium) would have on the above and on NWH's share price?

If there is a significant drop in the share price of NWH.UN would you see this as a "buy"?

Thanks!

Q: I am trying to like this company enough to buy in, but have a problem. They have not raised their dividend since they started. It would seem that they grow by aquisitions, funded by issuing stock, but are not able to get a good enough deal to net better than the 6.2 % they are paying now. That doesn't speak well for management. What is the point of growth if it does not get more return? Their payout ratio is apparently 94%.
I always think that for a company that does that, they would at least increase their 6.2% if they fired the management who are - to quote Shakespeare - up to "much ado about nothing". That salary that is spent NOT increasing my payment (at least enough to keep up with inflation!) could go to the bottom line!
In fact, if they are raising their rent by inflation then the net should go up by inflation. The fact it does not generally means they are not managing their costs well at all.
So, that being said, can you muster any argument that could convince me this is worth buying? Hopefully I am missing something!
Thanks!

Q: In the past you have mentioned you felt the dividend is vulnerable, wondering if anything has changed or do you still feel this way? Could you list a few Canadian REITS you would feel more comfortable with yielding above 5%?

Thanks
