Ventas (NYSE:VTR) is a REIT specializing in healthcare properties.

The company owns more than 1,200 properties, and the majority of these (55%) are senior housing. Medical offices, post-acute care properties, life science facilities, and health system real estate make up the rest.

There are two major growth opportunities that Ventas could capitalize on. First, there's the ongoing retirement of the baby boomer generation. The 75-and-older age group in the U.S. is growing seven times as fast as the overall population, and is expected to increase by 70% by 2030. This should translate to steadily growing healthcare demand, especially in the senior housing industry, Ventas' bread-and-butter.

In addition, the existing healthcare real estate market is more than $1 trillion in size, and is less than 15% REIT-owned. This is significantly lower than many other types of commercial real estate, and means that there is lots of opportunity for consolidation.

Ventas has grown its funds from operations (the REIT version of earnings) at an 11% annualized rate since 2001, and has been able to safely increase its dividend at a faster rate than its peers. So, not only is Ventas a high-income stock with a safe 4.9% yield, but it has the capability to generate market-beating returns as well.

This is a new holding in my Roth IRA, so only 25% of a full position now...

The baby boomers are getting older and they need to be taken care of. They are also the mostly wealthy generation of American seniors ever and can afford to live in more expensive senior living options.
This bodes very well for Ventas which as a REIT focuses on senior living and healthcare properties will serve it well into the future.

I like the diversification, the yield, and the fact that they've grown the dividend over the years and look to continue to do so.

I'm flattered to be the SL for VTR. It's just blind luck. I "bought" shares in the Co. b/c they had an awesome div yld at the time. I think they’ve a stable biz and my holding horizon is forever
