Mirae Asset Global Investments Co. Ltd., a leading institutional investor, recently made headlines when it raised its holdings in Healthpeak Properties, Inc. by an impressive 17.7% during the fourth quarter of 2022. According to its most recent disclosure with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Mirae Asset Global Investments now owns a total of 104,611 shares in the company’s stock, having purchased an additional 15,750 shares during the period. These holdings are currently worth approximately $2,623,000.
This news comes just weeks after Healthpeak Properties announced its latest quarterly dividend payment, which was paid out on May 19th to shareholders of record as of May 8th. The dividend came in at $0.30 per share, representing an annualized payout of $1.20 and a yield of 6.22%. Interestingly, Healthpeak Properties’ dividend payout ratio currently sits at a seemingly unsustainable 118.81%, which suggests that investors should keep a close eye on developments going forward.
In light of these announcements, several analysts have weighed in on PEAK’s performance over the coming months and years. While some have expressed concerns about the sustainability of Healthpeak Properties’ dividend payments given its current payout ratio, others believe that there is still plenty of room for growth in this sector.
For example, analysts from Morgan Stanley recently lifted their price objective on PEAK shares from $23 to $25 and maintained an “equal weight” rating for the stock. Similarly Mizuho revised its opinion on PEAK from ‘neutral’ to ‘buy,” although they lowered the price target from $29 to $25 per share.
However not all analysts are as optimistic about Healthpeak Properties’ future performance – Citigroup recently downgraded the stock from “buy” to “neutral” and set a target price of $23 per share.
All told though based off consensus data found via Bloomberg.com, it seems that the overall view of PEAK is “hold,” although with a consensus target price of $27.42.
In conclusion, Mirae Asset Global Investments’ decision to increase its holdings in Healthpeak Properties is certainly noteworthy, and investors will be paying close attention to this stock over the next few months and years. While there are surely risks associated with investing in any company, Healthpeak Properties’ impressive yield and potential for growth could make it an attractive option for those looking to diversify their portfolios. As always, investors should do their own research and carefully weigh the pros and cons before making any investment decisions in this market.
