While doing this research we’ve also uncovered a number of common stocks that investing gurus have recently bought, or continuing to hold in their portfolios, according to their latest 13f’s. So we’re now providing a new weekly feature article called ‘One Stock Superinvestors Are Buying’. This week we’ll take a look at:
Danaher Corp (DHR)
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.
A quick look at the price chart below for the company shows us that the stock is down 9.93% in the past twelve months.
