    I've looked at HCN as a possible buy but with this High Dividend Growth Stock being down -30% y-t-d, it's just too volatile for me to invest in. I'd rather buy either NHI or OHI with less risk, both down -20% y-t-d. I can buy OHI through a DRIP with Omega Healthcare Investors with no fees. It doesn't get any better than that. I hate paying for commissions or added fees. I'm a long-term investor with all my Dividend Growth Stocks and very rarely sell unless the dividend is cut or the company has long-term problems. These are just my thoughts on investing! DRK
