What are analysts saying about Danaher Corporation stock?

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

  • 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)
  • 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." (1/31/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Danaher has a decent earnings surprise history, beating estimates thrice over the trailing four quarters. The company’s core revenue growth, margin expansion and earnings growth during the reported quarter came on the back of its operating culture – Danaher Business System. After the spin-off of Fortive, Danaher is well on track to fortify its footprint in the targeted markets. The spin-off also represents Danaher’s effort to shift to less volatile end-markets. However, over the past six months, Danaher’s shares have yielded a negative return, comparing unfavorably to the Zacks categorized Diversified Operations industry average. Sluggish economic conditions across key operating regions and unfavorable currency translations pose as threats. Especially, slowdown in the company’s academic business in Europe is proving to be a major drag. Also, weakness in industrial markets and stiff competition add to its woes." (12/29/2016)

  • J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "With the pending spin-off of FTV set to be completed on July 2nd, we will be hosting a deep dive call at 10 am ET this morning on DHR and FTV. We believe this will be a timely conversation, as in addition to an analysis of the post spin revenue mix expected at both new DHR and FTV, we also plan to discuss a number of key topics (addressed below), including the recent underperformance of dental and thoughts on a turnaround; M&A/capital deployment (including a discussion of the broader opportunity set); the OPM expansion opportunity at both companies, appropriate comps for each business; updated thoughts on Pall around year two of the integration; and results from our recent buyside survey. Slides and dial-in details will be sent out in advance of the call." (6/30/2016)
