Guru Investment Theses on Brookdale Senior Living Inc

Third Avenue Management Comments on Brookdale Senior Living - Dec 10, 2015

Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE:BKD) is the largest and best in class owner-operator of senior housing in the US.3 Brookdale also owns 399 high quality senior housing properties. We believe that these properties represent approximately 50% of the company’s asset value that the market is not currently recognizing. In addition to being a best-in-class operator with valuable hard assets, Brookdale has attractive long-term tailwinds from an ageing Baby Boomer population. Finally, Brookdale is well-financed. It has approximately $6.8 billion of mortgage debt and capital leases on an estimated asset value of more than $20 billion, making it very well-capitalized.

Brookdale ran into two short term problems that have resulted in negative earnings revisions and a share price decline over the past six months. Brookdale merged with competitor Emeritus last year and integration issues have led to lower-than-expected occupancy, and high level executive turnover created uncertainty regarding the company’s ability to execute.

Despite these short term issues, the investment case remains unchanged. At the end of our quarter, Brookdale traded at $22.20 per share. From this depressed price, we believe there is tremendous upside, particularly if the company manages to monetize its real estate. Without any operating improvements, we believe Brookdale’s net asset value to be near $38 per share. Including synergies from the Emeritus merger and likely improvements in occupancy and average rents, Brookdale’s value could be well in excess of this estimate.

From Third Avenue Management (Trades, Portfolio)'s Value Fund fourth quarter 2015 portfolio manager commentary.

Baron Funds Comments on Brookdale Senior Living - May 05, 2014

Shares of Brookdale Senior Living, Inc. (NYSE:BKD), the nation's largest senior housing operator, rose 23% in the quarter. Business trends continue to improve, and we like the company's move to improve brand recognition and advertise their facilities. Brookdale announced they are making a significant acquisition of competitor Emeritus Corp. By the way, we are large shareholders of Emeritus as well, and its stock rose 45% in the quarter, so a win-win for us. We think the deal will be highly accretive, will help establish Brookdale as the clear industry leader, and will create a path to unlock the value of the company's considerable real estate assets.
