Danaher Turns In Strong Fourth Quarter, but 2023 Headwinds Starting; No Fair Value Estimate Change

Julie Utterback Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Julie Utterback |

Narrow-moat Danaher turned in stronger-than-anticipated operating results for the fourth quarter that pushed full-year 2022 results above expectations. However, COVID-19-related tailwinds look likely to turn into headwinds in 2023, which could negatively affect the top and bottom lines. Considering these roughly offsetting factors in our model, we do not anticipate changing our $242 fair value estimate materially.

Business Description

In 1984, Danaher’s founders transformed a real estate organization into an industrial-focused manufacturing company. Through a series of mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, Danaher now focuses primarily on manufacturing scientific instruments and consumables in three segments: life sciences, diagnostics, and environmental and applied solutions. In late 2022, the company announced plans to divest its environmental and applied solutions group in 2023, which would leave it focused entirely on life sciences and diagnostics.
