Ventas CEO Comments on Outlook

Wednesday, 27 Jun 2012 | 6:33 PM ET

Whether or not the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upholds the health care reform law commonly referred to as "Obamacare," Jim Cramer thinks investors should consider Ventas' stock.

Ventas is a real estate investment trust that happens to be the U.S.'s largest owner of private pay housing facilities for seniors, as well as the largest owner of medical office buildings. But in the last 12 years, its stock has delivered a compound annual return of 32.5 percent. In the last decade, it has gained 680 percent, including reinvested dividends.

Speaking of dividends, VTR currently sports a 4 percent dividend yield.

Ventas CEO: Ruling Will Have Limited Impact on Us
Mad Money host Jim Cramer explains why he thinks Ventas can withstand any ruling on Obamacare; and Debra Cafaro, Ventas chairman & CEO, discusses how her company has held such a great track record for the last 12 years.

Naturally, Cramer thinks this stock is worth a closer look. So he welcomed CEO Debra Cafaro onto Wednesday's program.
