Merck KGaA Turns In Strong Q2 Including Currency Rate Benefits; No Change to Fair Value Estimate

Julie Utterback, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Julie Utterback, CFA |

Narrow-moat Merck KGaA revealed solid second-quarter results and a slightly higher outlook than we had been incorporating into our model for 2022. Even after recognizing those decent trends in our model, though, we do not anticipate changing our fair value estimate at first glance. The shares continue to trade at moderately rich levels, in our opinion.
