What are analysts saying about Danaher stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Danaher stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Danaher reported first-quarter 2017 adjusted earnings of $0.85, which beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 1.2% and was up 7.6% on a year-over-year basis. The company’s core revenue and earnings growth during the reported quarter came on the back of its operating culture, DBS. Going forward, the company believes that it is very well-positioned in the biopharma business and expects it to act as a major profit churner. Over the past six months, the stock outperformed the Zacks categorized Diversified Operations industry average. However, on the flip side, sluggish economic conditions across key operating regions and unfavorable currency translations pose as threats. Especially, slowdown in the company’s academic business in Europe and prolonged sluggishness in the Dental business has restricted growth. In addition, weakness in industrial markets and stiff competition may hurt the company's financials." (4/21/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Following a solid 4Q beat, our '17 forecasts feel incrementally conservative, given strong core margin progress & encouraging signs of better demand in certain industrial pockets. With core growth poised to accelerate in '17 (and '18) & ample margin expansion levers on-hand, we maintain our Buy rating." (2/1/2017)
  • 3. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "DHR delivered a quarter generally consistent with expectations as core growth remains on an upward trajectory, OMx is solid given the flurry of deals over the past 24 months and FCF conversion is elevated (another form of synergy capture from M&A). We believe investors have aptly rewarded the result, with today's move in shares indicative of a flee to safety and predictability in what is otherwise a challenging Healthcare tape. Given potential cyclical upside should global GDP growth accelerate and a reasonably strong B/S to continue capital allocation in 2017 and beyond we believe DHR's elevated valuation is justified and thus it remains our 'Top Pick' within a Tools complex we favor overall. Furthermore, we believe that while the Dental market has proven frustrating, the asset is of high quality and long-term investors will be pleased to either see the business generate improved / superior returns or be monetized (via sale / spin) for more than is implied in current valuation."
