COMMENT
It is a larger weight holding in their health care fund. It is well diversified and does fine during market downturns. One of his favourite blue chips in the S&P 500.
machinery
BUY
He recommends it, but has had a rough year. It did good business during Covid, mostly in Covid testing. But this created tough comparisons. Recently, it reported an excellent quarter. DHR reported a big top and bottom line beat and gave robust full-year and current-quarter guidance. Share have been rallying ever since. They are genuises in integrating businesses they buy. Also, 75% of their business is recurring revenues.
machinery
BUY on WEAKNESS
He;s been buying this as it's been going down. He really likes it now. DHR is in talks to make an acquisition in life sciences. Shares are pressured because of PCR testing as the street feels that Covid is going away. Has a low PE and offers good growth.
machinery
PARTIAL SELL
Likes the life sciences and diagnostics exposure here. DHR is a serial acquirer, starting to divest businesses. You can take some profits and buy Stryker.
machinery
TOP PICK
A conglomerate in the healthcare space. They have done exceedingly well during COVID. They integrated into genomic medicine. (Analysts’ price target is $340.03)
machinery
BUY
They report Thursday. They have a high-growth healthcare business that they partly picked up from GE for a song. He expects a great quarter.
machinery
DON'T BUY
A diversified industrial company in the life science and diagnostic services business. Has grown through acquisitions. Has made 2 dozens acquisitions in the past year. Bought GE's biopharma business. Relatively expensive at 40x earnings. Does not warrant this type of price tag. Nothing wrong but a little expensive for him.
machinery
COMMENT

DHR vs. TMO vs. WAT WAT not performing as well as Thermo Fisher or Danaher. Cash from operations has been flat in the last 4 years, whereas the other two have doubled, which is reflected in the stock price. Market share, operating margins, and pricing power impact the business model. Compare these when assessing competitors in an industry.

machinery
COMMENT

A fine long-term performer. They bought a biopharma asset from GE and will report on it in on Wednesday.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Oct 28/19, Up 54%) Covid is impacting them. They bought GE pharma division, and the timing couldn't be better. Grown dividend by 28% over the last 5 years, paying down debt.

machinery
BUY
They produce consumables for drug production, a great company. For the discovery and production of drugs. They're in a unique situation, because their filtration systems also apply to industrial production.
machinery
WAIT
Has long owned this. It's benefited from COVID, because DHR prrovides testing equipment. Their latest acquisition was huge, from GE's bio-farm unit. DHR is expensive now, but this is good for the long term. Buy only half or a third now and see what happens with volatility in the fall running up the U.S. election.
machinery
WATCH
It is rather like a 3-M, a healthcare services like company, diagnostics, etc. He thinks it is a fabulous company. Maybe you want to hold this for a longer period of time. Margins may be peaking, however. In the US healthcare is tied to employment. The dividend is actually quite small. You want to focus on this in the post-COVID-19 environment.
machinery
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Jan 17/19, Up 54%) A life-sciences companies that also does consumables and mass spectrometers. They recently purchased the GE biopharma section. They have big margins coming into the company. Earnings were higher than their peer group. He has owned this since 2013 and he sees no reason to sell it. He wouldn't enter now with 30x earnings. It works as a core holding since life science has good growth potential.
