Mizuho Securities analyst Vikram Malhotra upgraded Sabra Healthcare REIT Inc. (NASDAQ: SBRA) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $15.00 (from $16.00).

The analyst comments "After being vocally negative on Skilled Nursing during the past six months, we upgrade Sabra to Buy with a $15 price target, implying over 12% upside. While there remains debate on this sub-sector, we now see this as a tactically opportune time to upgrade, given a) several negatives are well-known, b) we see occupancy slowly but steadily improving, with a low bar amongst the investor community, c) a high probability the public health emergency (and associated benefits) gets extended, and d) our sensitivity analysis suggests the dividend (9% yield) is covered in our base and bull cases. Our price target assumes a modest expansion in AFFO multiples from the current 10x."
