Peer group price to FFO multiple

REITs’ income can be correctly determined using the price-to-FFO multiple, which makes multiple adjustments—like adding back depreciation to correctly reflect income.

Peer group dividend yield

HCN has a dividend yield of 5.7%—higher than the peer group median and average of 5.6%. Compared to the peer group, it has a higher dividend yield and a higher payout ratio.

Peer group earnings per share

HCN has a TTM (trailing-12-month) EPS (earnings per share) and TTM PE (price-to-earnings ratio) of $1.15 and $53.01, respectively. Peer Ventas (VTR) recorded $1.68 and $33.77, respectively, while Healthcare Trust of America (HTA) recorded $0.24 and $116.45, and HCP (HCP) recorded $1.11 and $21.95.
