Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
For an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer again spoke with Debra Cafaro, chairman and CEO of Ventas Inc. (VTR) , the medical REIT with shares that are flat over the past 12 months as investors have become concerned with the company's senior living properties.
Cafaro said she's most excited about her company's $2 billion investment into university-centered research facilities. She said these facilities will become hubs of research and innovation and over 75% of their partners are A-rated, mitigating credit risk.
But beyond these facilities, Cafaro noted that Ventas has always believed in financial strength and flexibility. She addressed concerned about their senior living business by saying that in some markets, there is a mismatch between the number of facilities available and the immediate demand. But this is part of the normal cycle, and that demand will be absorbed quickly. There were twice as many new facilities being build two years ago compared to today, a positive sign that the correction is already underway.
Finally, Cafaro commended the staff at their 10 facilities that were evacuated during the recent hurricanes. She said despite having the monumental task of evacuating frail seniors, their operators did a remarkable job at keeping everyone safe.
