Question for PHP fans - if the earnings yield is c.4.8%, and the gearing 45%, what happens when the debt cost keeps climbing?

Yes, I know they keep mentioning the 7 years average duration, but the clue's in "average" - debt costs will rise futher.

And yes, I get that they get a few % increase in rent every year, with 90% of it pseudo-govnt, but what happens if a Labour govnt decides rents need to be frozen, to eg put more money into cancer care? Who will stand up for PHP shareholders?

I just think/fear there's more risk here than meets the eye, with little chance of growing out of it by acqn or development. The move to do more in Ireland is probably wise tho.

I've never had an issue. I've just received PHP payout as expected. It may depend which broker you're with. But I've found for any REITS in ISA if there has been a temporary deduction it been paid in to the ISA later so I've never had to claim back.

warranty - I will be interested to see the following:
The rational for taking on a workforce and the costs involved especially as most of Axis Technical Services Limited work load would appear to be for PHP.
Whether they are taking on a pension liability and if so how much.
What this means for the future direction and operation of the company.

Warranty - I echo your thoughts but it pains me to see the fact that PHP is on the list of most popular shares for being shorted.

So anybody any thoughts on what results will be like on Wednesday? Old PHP is in the doldrums at the moment and we need some good news to spark a bit of life into her and the share price Surely there can’t be many more solid businesses than this one in difficult times?

These stable increasing returns have enabled it to increase its dividend every year since its IPO, generating compound annual shareholder returns of 11% a year since 1996. The latest quarterly payment worth 1.625p a share is due in shareholder accounts on Tuesday.

The recent fall in shares means Primary’s fully-covered dividend yield now stands at 6%, which broker Peel Hunt says is a healthy spread of around 200 basis points over 20-year gilts.

The City firm also notes the upward-only nature of rent reviews, the 25% of direct index-linked rental income and the improving outlook for market rental growth.

The broker prefers Primary Health over Assura as its favoured healthcare play and believes the recent share price weakness presents a “compelling” buying opportunity.

It said on Friday: “Unlike social housing and care homes where rent collection has already reduced, we have no such worries for the primary healthcare sector.

Most of Primary’s facilities are GP surgeries, with other properties let to NHS organisations, HSE in Ireland, pharmacies and dentists. This means about 89% of rent is funded by the UK and Irish governments.

The value of adjusted net tangible assets was 120.8p in July’s half-year results, but this compares with shares at 103.8p and Peel Hunt’s target price of 165p. 

The broker added: “While no real estate sub-sector is immune from rising bond yields, we believe sectors with strong fundamentals and a robust rental growth outlook are likely to fare much better.”

The boardroom share purchases took place on Thursday and Friday at prices between 103.8p and 104.6p. As well as Howell’s purchase, chairman Steven Owen spent £30,000 and a person connected to the company’s chief investment officer bought shares worth £7,500.

A bit of buying by the directors...

Steven Owen (Non-Executive Chairman) bought 28,809 at 104.1p = £29,999

Richard Howell (CFO) bought 35,000 at 103.8p = £36,323

Philippa Bateman (wife of David Bateman, CIO) bought 7,712 at 104.6p = £7,499
