Earlier this month, skilled nursing facility operators Genesis and Signature received qualified audits, sending a ripple of concern through the industry and causing some investors to pullback from REIT investing. While qualified audits can cause concern over tenant risk, Mizuho Securities says that the concern is largely “overblown.” With government support behind the market, Mizuho Securities expects skilled nursing tenants to continue to fulfill rent obligations, making them a stable tenant. In fact, not only is Mizuho maintaining the rating for healthcare REITs in the skilled nursing market segment, but it is raising its earnings estimates and price targets for SBRA, OHI and CTRE.
