What are Wall Street analysts saying about DENTSPLY SIRONA stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about DENTSPLY SIRONA stock:
  • 1. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are cutting our investment rating to MARKET PERFORM in response to XRAY’s weak financial guidance for the remainder of FY/18 and the massive uncertainty we still see surrounding this business beyond this year. This update marks a new low in DENTSPLY SIRONA’s disappointing 2 ½ year history as a combined publicly-traded company." (8/9/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Our price target is derived from a comparable universe-based approach, which utilizes a price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple calculated from a group of peer companies in the medical and dental equipment arenas." (8/8/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "DENTSPLY underperformed the industry in a year’s time. A lowered guidance is discouraging. The company's higher capital expenditure on product development and tough competition are expected to exert pressure on margins. Unfavorable foreign exchange rate and integration risks are major headwinds for the near term. The stock is overvalued at the moment. On the brighter side, the company is likely to gain from robust performance in the flagship dental implants, CAD/CAM systems, imaging systems, treatment centers and orthodontic product platforms. Emerging markets like Asia-Pacific & the Middle East offer healthy growth opportunities, as they remain vastly untapped with low dental products penetration. The company’s agreements with MedTech bigwig Patterson Companies in Canada are likely to drive sales. DENTSPLY recently witnessed a rebound in sales in Asia, particularly Japan, and strong growth in Russia." (8/6/2018)
  • 4. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Dynavax provided Phase 1b/2 updates on TLR9 agonist, SD-101 in combination with Keytruda, for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and metastatic melanoma at AACR." (4/16/2018)
