Moody's lifts Healthcare Realty rating

Analyst Ranjini Venkatesan at Moody's Investors Service has lifted his rating on the debt of Healthcare Realty Trust to Baa2 from Baa3, saying the Nashville-based company has improved its operations, signing more tenants to and generating more cash from its properties.

Over the last 2 years, Healthcare Realty has materially reduced its exposure to new developments. New projects announced at the end of 2Q2015 are modest in terms of scale, accounting for an investment of 1% of gross assets. The REIT acquired two MOB assets in 2015 for $53 million and expects to close another $50-100 million by year-end. Given the strong investor interest in high quality MOB assets, Moody's expects that it would be challenging to consistently find good assets at reasonable cap rates over the longer term.
