The cuts could potentially destabilize the sector and have a negative impact on operating results. The good news is that many companies in the sector generally have diversified property portfolios that will shield them somewhat from the cuts. This means the setbacks may not have a large long-term impact.
Another headwind affecting the sector is the decline of home values. With many seniors planning to use the equity in their homes to fund retirement, the downward spiral in home valuations has forced many to postpone retirement altogether. However, the vast quantity of baby-boomers progressing toward the age where long-term care often becomes necessary, the macro landscape seems to be an overall tailwind for the sector.
