I looked at MPW back in 2019 as it hit a few value screens for me.

However, a few things scared me off.

1) The share count was rising at a rate faster than their revenues were rising.

2) There GSA expense was rising faster than their revenues.

3) Their dividend coverage was consistently declining.

4) Having lived and rented properties in both Italy and Germany I wondered about their moving into those markets.

5) One of REITs appeals is the income tax free nature of REITs at least at the federal level. While I do not have the inclination to search the tax laws of multiple nations, I did not in the 2020 statement of cash flows that MPW paid just a little over $5 million in income taxes in 2020.
