Ventas CEO Comments on Outlook

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.

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

Watch the video to see the full interview.
