BABY BOOMERS! Over the next 10-15 years the population of retired and aging people will drastically increase due to the Baby Boomers. We can already see it starting, but in much smaller proportions than what we'll see in the coming years. Frankly, a co. that manages retirement, assisted living, and nursing home community properties stands to do quite well, as space will be at a premium. Look for solid long-term gains from Vetras.

Factor in the recent sale of several properties to Kindred (for what looks to bring profit for the quarter) and you can look for solid short-term gains as well.

I agree. I added both VTR and HCP to my portfolio earlier in the year. Both companies create enormous value for shareholders. The "baby boomer factor" makes ownership in these companies a wise move which I think will be highly evident during the next couple decades.
