Is it a good company at a reasonable price? I worry about the amount of debt (Leverage and Debt/Equity Ratios) and the very low Liquidity Ratio. I also think of this company more as a Real Estate company than anything else. This is the same as for Chartwell. It is not the sort of company I would be interested in. The stock price testing shows that the stock price is relatively cheap.

I do not own this stock of Sienna Senior Living Inc (TSX-SIA, OTC-LWSCF). When I looked in Stock Chase about Chartwell, Greg Newman; Director & Portfolio Manager, Scotia Wealth Management said he liked Sienna Senior Living Better, so I investigated it.

When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed that what I do not like is the very, very low Liquidity Ratio. For 2022 it is 0.25, add in Cash Flow after dividends and it is 0.47. Even adding back in debt, it is 0.99. If this ratio is below 1.00, it means that current assets cannot cover current liabilities. It is even worse for the third quarter of 2023. Ratio here is 0.27, adding in cash flow after dividends, it is 0.51 and adding back in the current portion of the debt it only goes to 0.60. However, others do not seem to be worried about this.

If you had invested in this company in December 2012, for $1,004.00 you would have bought 80 shares at $12.55 per share. In December 2022, after 10 years you would have received $731.04 in dividends. The stock would be worth $872.00. Your total return would have been $1,603.04. This is a total return would be a total return of 6.28% per year with a 1.40% capital loss and 7.68% from dividends.

Cost | Tot. Cost | Shares | Years | Dividends | Stock Val | Tot Ret |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

$12.55 | $1,004.00 | 80 | 44 | $731.04 | $872.00 | $1,603.04 |

The current dividend yield is high with dividend growth very low. The current dividend yield is high (7% and above) at 8.63%. The 5, 10 and historical dividend yields are good (5% to 6% ranges) at 6.29%, 5.26% and 6.54%. The dividend growth is low (below 8%) at 0.79% per year over the past 5 years. Dividend growth has never been more than very low. The last dividend increase was in 2019 and it was for 2%. There is often a trade-off between dividend yield and dividend growth.

The important Dividend Payout Ratios (DPR) of AFFO and FFO are currently fine. The DPR for 2022 for Earnings per Share (EPS) are awful, but not that important at 328% with 5 year coverage at 1329%. The DPR for 2022 for Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO) is 99% with 5 year coverage acceptable at 80%. This ratio is expected to be 91 in 2024. The DPR for 2022 for Funds from Operations (FFO) is 97% with 5 year coverage acceptable at 80%. This ratio is expected to be 87% in 2024. The DPR for 2022 for Cash Flow per Share (CFPS) is 16% with 5 year coverage at 38%. The DPR for 2022 for Free Cash Flow (FCF) is 139% with 5 year coverage at 107%.

Item | Cur | 5 Years |
---|---|---|

EPS | 628.19% | 1328.94% |

AFFO | 99.26% | 80.82% |

FFO | 96.99% | 80.15% |

CFPS | 35.75% | 37.71% |

FCF | 139.28% | 107.15% |

Debt Ratios show that they have a lot of debt. The Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio for 2022 is too high at 1.07 with the current one better at 1.19. I also looked at Long Term Debt/Corresponding Assets Ratio and they are fine at 0.81 and 0.89. The Liquidity Ratio for 2022 is awful at .25 and 0.27 currently. If you added in Cash Flow after dividends, the ratios are not much better at 0.47 and 0.51. If you add back in also the current portion of the long term debt, they are still far too low at 0.99 and 0.60. I prefer them to be 1.50 or higher.

The Debt Ratio for 2022 is low at 1.35 and 1.30 currently. I also prefer them to be 1.50 or higher. The Leverage and Debt/Equity Ratios for 2022 are too high at 3.87 and 2.87 and currently at 4.31 and 3.31. I prefer them to be below 3.00 and 2.00.
