Senior Housing Properties Trust (SNH): Today's Featured Real Estate Laggard

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Senior Housing Properties ( SNH) pushed the Real Estate industry lower today making it today's featured Real Estate laggard. The industry as a whole was unchanged today. By the end of trading, Senior Housing Properties fell $0.62 (-2.4%) to $25.78 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1,342,491 shares of Senior Housing Properties exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1,487,400 shares. The stock ranged in price between $25.66-$26.68 after having opened the day at $26.61 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $26.40. Other companies within the Real Estate industry that declined today were: Homex Development ( HXM), down 12.4%, American Spectrum Realty ( AQQ), down 11.6%, American Realty Investors ( ARL), down 5.8% and Supertel Hospitality ( SPPR), down 5.6%.

Senior Housing Properties Trust, a real estate investment trust (REIT), primarily invests in senior housing properties in the United States. The trust invests in hospitals, nursing homes, senior apartments, independent living properties, and assisted living properties. Senior Housing Properties has a market cap of $5.0 billion and is part of the financial sector. Shares are up 12.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are no analysts that rate Senior Housing Properties a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 8 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Senior Housing Properties as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, increase in net income and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, FirstService Corporation ( FSRV), up 6.1%, American Capital Mortgage Investment ( MTGE), up 5.7%, HMG/Courtland Properties ( HMG), up 5.7% and St. Joe Corporation ( JOE), up 5.1% , were all gainers within the real estate industry with American Capital Agency ( AGNC) being today's featured real estate industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the real estate industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ( IYR) while those bearish on the real estate industry could consider ProShares Short Real Estate Fund ( REK).
