A private equity company and a smart acquisitor. They bought GE's biopharma division which added debt to their books, but DHR has done buys like this before, knowing how to pay down debt yet be accretive to earnings. They have spun-off their dental division The dividend has grown 28% annually, though it is small now. Great for the long term. (Analysts’ price target is $152.14)

They just bought GE Pharma for $20 billion that supposedly is going to be an earnings accretive acquisition. The stock went up in price $6 the day it was announced. The market basically saying "you did good". Now they sit back and pay down the debt in 5 years. There is going to be a bump in earnings. Still buying but it is getting toppish.

(A Top Pick March 13/17. Up 19.26%) Along with all the life sciences companies, it’s been on a tear. This is because margins are growing. A lot of these are overseas. He likes this because they are in 4 major businesses, dental, water, environmental and all of the usable things for testing that are in laboratories. Still a Hold.

Danaher makes acquisitions of companies in those industries, and then turns them around. The dividend has been growing at roughly a 12%-15% clip, so a 13% return on the stock price is no surprise.

This is in 4 basic businesses, which are all trends moving forward. They got rid of their industrial business about a year ago with a spinoff, and what is left is what he wants to own. Life sciences, diagnostics, dental and environment. Instead of owning oil and gas stocks, his resource of choice is water. This company does wastewater management. Long-term returns have been almost double what the S&P 500 has been over the last 5, 10, 20 years. These guys are like private equities. They come in and buy a company, but unlike the 3 Gs of the world, where they rip everything apart, they work with the owners and build the businesses as turnarounds. This is where the value added comes from. Dividend growth, free cash flow growth and revenue growth. In 3 of the 4 businesses, the margins are mid-teens and with the water business, it is up in the 20s, creating huge returns on capital. Yield of 0.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $89.82.)

(A Top Pick July 15/14. Up 8.95%.) A multi-industrial with exposure to medical devices and your typical businesses as well. In this market, this is one of the better industrials to own, because it doesn’t have exposure to oil and gas. The new CEO has done a great job of navigating shareholders expectations. Feels they have a significant amount of CapX to do a deal. It is an M&A story, and people are waiting for the M&A to happen.

A multi-industrial. Unique in that they have the industrial exposure as well as a healthcare technology segment. Both segments have very good growth prospects. One of the best management teams he has ever met. CEO is retiring, but COO is stepping in, so it will be a smooth transition. Historically, the company has given 11%-12% EPS growth, 15% free cash flow growth and 15% dividend growth. Not expensive. They can do an M&A up to about $12 billion. Accruing so much cash on the balance sheet that you are either going to get a special dividend or they will go out and do a large-scale M&A. Yield of 0.51%. Feels the stock could be worth north of $85.

In 5 major areas. Dental, environmental services, industrial services, test and measurement and life sciences. Great company. All these areas are interesting. Roughly 25% of each area is in emerging markets. Finds it expensive at 15.2X next year’s earnings per share. He prefers a more focused view, for example water, which this company has a piece of.
