HCP Healthcare REIT Article for Seeking Alpha

My new article at Seeking Alpha is up.


Note that Seeking Alpha has started putting articles behind a PRO subscription paywall, so after a certain amount of time you may not be able to view this article. HCP, Inc. (NYSE: HCP) is a healthcare REIT going through changes, streamlining its asset base and cleaning its balance sheet. I own it, and I’m looking to buy more.

As always, feel free to look at my portfolio and see how I’m doing. Usually I own or plan to own stock in many of the companies I write about. Specific numbers I reference may not be completely accurate; different online financial sources often have somewhat conflicting information. Verify information via multiple sources you trust. Please READ MY DISCLAIMER. Do not take action in the market simply because of what you read here. I write about what I am doing and what I think, I am not advising anyone to do anything. Make your own decisions, do your own research, and never rely on any single source for information. Some of my ‘picks’ and strategies WILL lose money, that’s the way the market works. I am not a financial professional; do not rely on me as such.
