Danaher is not exactly a cheap company using traditional metrics, at least not what I consider to be cheap. The fact that the company's long-time CEO, Lawrence Culp Jr., is leaving, combined with DAH's inability to find any attractive acquisition targets lately are causing people to speculate that the company may breakup into pieces. I have done really well with this sort of situation in the past.

DAH's stock is sitting near an all-time high fueled by this speculation, a round of analyst upgrades and the good old Jim Cramer pop. After its recent run, this seems like one of those stocks that would be great to purchase after a temporary market sell-off. Even so, I think that it has upside from here if it was indeed to split into pieces.

Kudos to stillwater9999 for bringing this to people's attention on the discussion boards.

take a look at the chart, than compare with BRK-B over the last ten years. DHR crushes the oracle.

I trust these guys to do good deals and perform above market. It's like buying a pe fund without paying the fees.

Tom Gardner pick. They buy up companies and try to conglomerate and improve for the long term. I don't totally understand it, but I like what I read so far.

Well run company, management is very growth oriented. Danaher Business system is a proven system that can take new aquisitions and add lots of value.

294. Danaher Corp. (NYSE: DHR) is one of the companies in the S&P500 that I think I'd enjoy working for. They are excellent at selecting companies to acquire at a specific price. This specific price is short of the value that Danaher believes they can add by effectively kicking operational tail. I'm glad they raised their 'pity the fool' dividend to 3 cents but come on. What is the point of a pity dividend? Target: $50-$60. This is a company that is a solid own for the next decade at these prices. If you're lucky enough to get a dip, buy it and let your portfolio rip.

Steady growth and dividend-paying, with a smart management team heading it up, focused on getting the most value possible out of every step in the process. Thriftiness as a culture, powering super companies. Very good at recognizing companies that will benefit from their process.

Danaher excels at finding good companies and buying them at good prices. They add value by reducing costs and improving margins at their acquisitions by applying their special blend of continuous improvement processes, aka the Danaher Business System. They do this better than most other companies.
