shawz007: "The shift to a policy of a fully covered dividend will not change the total return achieved by shareholders, but instead will re-balance how shareholders receive that return between income and capital growth." How does this work in practice? How will I see my return be the same? The share price itself will rise by the lost cash dividends?
speedsgh: Interim Results accompanied by a significant change to the company's dividend policy. Move to a fully covered dividend as of FY19. Company forecasts no change to the shareholders' total return but a rebalancing of the return between income & capital growth. Based on Interim Results annualised full year dividend would have been 3.5p. Commitment to pay previously announced full year dividend of 6.04p in FY18 i.e. quarterly payments of 1.51p at end of Jun/Sep/Dec. Company says main shareholders are supportive. Rebasing of the dividend wef FY19 will represent a reduction of c40% on the current annual dividend. Likely to lead to some volatility in the short/medium term as various funds reallocate holdings? Interim Results - HTTPS:// ... Since MedicX was formed in 2006, primary healthcare has become a firmly established asset class for institutional capital, demonstrating consistently attractive returns, with a benchmark ten year track record of 9.4% per annum total return1. Over that same period, UK yields have tightened and are now around 4.25 - 4.75%2, considerably lower than those of approximately 6.0% available when MedicX was formed. Looking ahead, we expect competition for assets to remain strong with yields remaining at these new levels. There are signs of rents beginning to increase on new schemes as a consequence of both rising land costs and higher build costs. The macro environment is not unique to MedicX and the increased market focus on dividend cover for those companies with real illiquid assets was the backdrop for our recent strategic review by the Board. At this review we considered a wide range of matters to ensure the Company's long term sustainable growth, including risk and the corresponding expected levels of return, capital structure, investment policy, dividend policy and the Company's appeal to a wider range of investors which should be reflected in an improved share rating, enabling the Company to grow sustainably. Since MedicX was formed 12 years ago, we have maintained and grown a long term visible income stream for our shareholders, and as part of that strategy we have been an active acquirer of high quality assets. Over that period, we have paid dividends totalling over £156 million (62.89 pence per share) to our shareholders. Our Investment Adviser believes that yields are likely to remain stable for high quality, modern, purpose-built primary healthcare properties meeting our investment criteria and, consequently, this necessitated a review of the Company's dividend distribution policy. Since formation, the Company has leveraged at near 50% and paid a high dividend, materially above market sub-sector yields and rental returns, which has delivered significant shareholder returns, while our direct peers are currently paying substantially covered dividends. Were MedicX to maintain its current dividend policy, it would reduce our ability to evolve and take advantage of acquisition opportunities and also strengthen our capital structure. Following a consultation with a number of our major shareholders, the Board has taken the decision to rebase the dividend going forward and to lower the risk associated with the need for a relatively high leverage to support the existing dividend policy. It will also transition to a fully covered dividend for the 2019 financial year onwards. The new policy will better align the Company's dividend distributions with its current level of cash flows. The Company sees opportunities to grow its portfolio substantially and deliver the benefits of economies of scale; it would not be resetting the dividend if this were not the case and it is appreciative of the level of support received from shareholders consulted. During this transition period to a fully covered dividend, your Board intends to maintain its previous announced guidance that it will declare and pay dividends totalling 6.04 pence per share for the 2018 financial year. Therefore, subject to unforeseen circumstances, dividends of 1.51 pence per Ordinary Share are expected to be paid in respect of the quarters ending 31 March, 30 June and 30 September 2018, payable quarterly up to 31 December 2018. Following this transition period, the Board expect to pay a rising quarterly dividend from a covered position. As an illustration, if the Company had declared and paid a fully covered dividend on the basis of the results for the six months ended 31 March 2018, less headroom of 5%, the dividend declared on an annualised basis would have been 3.5 pence per share3. Based on the share price at 31 March 2018, this would have given a covered dividend with a dividend yield of 4.45%. The shift to a policy of a fully covered dividend will not change the total return achieved by shareholders, but instead will re-balance how shareholders receive that return between income and capital growth. In light of the Company's strong pipeline of opportunities and society's increasing need for modern, purpose-built, integrated healthcare premises, the Board continues to consider that primary healthcare remains a compelling proposition with your Company being well placed to deliver long term value to shareholders.

pooroldboy55: If anyone interested go to 3i there's a response to an email about share price from MXF very interesting and positive.
speedsgh: Premiums to last stated NAV: MXF +7.3% (based on 81.0p offer; NAV 75.5p as at 30/6/17) PHP +17.8% (based on 113.25p offer; NAV 96.1p as at 30/6/17) Fall of over 10% in a month is certainly unusual for a tortoise share such as MXF. The difference in premium to NAV compared to PHP is striking, although I note that the PHP share price has also fallen c8% since early Oct.
speedsgh: Will the dividend ever be fully covered? Does it matter? From Edison's Dec 2016 research note... "MedicX’s key attraction is its access to sources of secure, long-term income that underpins its dividend payments. The company, barring unforeseen circumstances, expects to pay dividends of 6.0p per share in FY17, 1% above FY16, a yield of 6.8% on the current share price. We expect this to be 64.4% covered by EPRA earnings, the highest level since 2009. Portfolio growth would allow cover to continue to grow, and the use of block listing above NAV to finance acquisitions may allow acceleration of dividend cover growth. The prospective dividend yield is the highest among the peer group of property companies specialising in long-let assets, despite the considerable (c 20%) premium to NAV at which the shares trade. In fact, MedicX has recently had the highest dividend yield on EPRA NAV of the group as well as the highest premium to NAV, implying investor appetite for yield even when this is in part paid from capital. Notably, the three primary care property companies with mainly government-funded income trade on higher premiums than the other three, indicating that the market may place more importance on the tenant covenant than the unexpired lease term of the portfolio, or dividend cover."

ridicule: This share is beginning to pop again. Great yield, but the current share price is well above current NAV. This has kept the share price pegged in the high 80s. People are beginning to understand, however, that NAV will rise as the 15 or so medical centres in their construction phase come on line as rent generators. This is a rock solid high yield investment with further capital gains to come as new medical centres are commissioned.
ih_552354: Could be pi's diversifying and taking a 7% yield...+ a little share price increase per annum gives a nice return. V good for an ISA.
eeza: Tipped in Telegraph Questor share tip: MedicX offers 7pc dividend income from infrastructure The fund invests in a portfolio of GP surgeries across the country that generate healthy dividends from rental income, says Questor By John Ficenec, Questor Editor - 5:40PM GMT 09 Dec 2015 MedicX 84.75p -0.25p Questor says BUY MedicX [LON:MXF], the infrastructure fund that owns GP surgeries across the UK and Ireland, delivered a solid set of annual results yesterday, with the 7pc dividend looking increasingly attractive. Prior to the formation of the National Health Service in 1948, surgeries largely lacked the facilities their patients needed. Nowadays, GP surgeries are used as the front line of the health service, and only modern, purpose-built facilities will do. MedicX raises the finance for these structures to be built. The company then owns the buildings for their lifetime and earns rent for their use. These rental payments are almost entirely backed by the Government due to the essential role of GP surgeries in the health care system. The debt MedicX uses to finance its portfolio is agreed for 15 years and fixed at a low interest rate of 4.45pc, on average. The company’s investment portfolio increased by 8pc to £559m in the year to the end of September. The rent charged on those buildings rose 9.1pc to £35.8m. MedicX has a conservative 50pc loan-to-value ratio, with net debts of £281m at the end of September. The value of the investment portfolio, minus the debt, gives a net asset value of £258m, or 70.8p per share, at the end of September. MedicX steadily returns cash to investors through quarterly dividend payments, which total 5.9p for the year, or a prospective yield of 7pc given the current 84.25p share price. The shares trade at a 20pc premium to the net asset value but that looks warranted given the steady income and opportunity for growth. Buy.
