Medical Properties Trust Inc. (MPW) Declines more than 50% 

Medical Properties Trust Inc. (MPW) Declines more than 50%, featured by top securities fraud attorneys, the White Law Group

Securities Investigation: Medical Properties Trust Inc. (MPW)

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker dealers who may have improperly recommended Medical Properties Trust Inc to investors. 

Medical Properties Trust, Inc., real estate investment trust, reportedly engages in the investment, acquisition, and development of net-leased healthcare facilities. Its property portfolio includes rehabilitation hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals for women and children, regional and community hospitals, medical office buildings, and other single-discipline facilities.   

According to Market Watch today, MPW is down –54.08% YTD. 

Aggressive financial advisors may have unsuitably recommended MPW in an effort to chase yield. Investors who buy solely on the basis of the dividend may experience losses as the dividend is cut and the stock price declines in response. 

If your financial advisor over-concentrated your portfolio, you may have a viable claim to recover your losses.  Financial advisors are required to make suitable investment recommendations, accounting for your age, income, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.  Diversification is the key to reducing risk.  As such, over-concentrated exposure to any sector can be unsuitable for many investors. 

Potential Lawsuits to Recover Investment Losses

Prior to making recommendations to an individual investor, brokerage firms are required by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to disclose all the risks of an investment. Recommendations should only be made if the investment is suitable for an individual investor given their age, investment objections, investment experience and risk tolerance. 

Brokerage firms that do not perform adequate due diligence on an investment and/or make unsuitable recommendations can be held accountable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration. 

FINRA operates the largest securities dispute resolution forum in the United States, and has extensive experience in providing a fair, efficient and effective venue to handle a securities-related dispute.
