Dentsply Sirona wins summary judgment against Edge Endo, US Endodontics » 18:0306/2406/24/20
Dentsply Sirona announced…
Dentsply Sirona announced that on Tuesday, June 23rd, the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico, in a ruling by Judge Joseph Bataillon, held that EdgeTaper Encore endodontic files sold by US Endodontics and Edge Endo infringe at least three valid claims of patents asserted by Dentsply Sirona Inc. Judge Bataillon granted Dentsply Sirona's motion for summary judgment that each of the three patent claims were infringed by EdgeTaper Encore and that Dentsply Sirona's three patent claims are valid. The Court also rejected Edge's request to dismiss Dentsply Sirona's claim that Edge's infringement was willful. A finding of willful infringement allows the Court to award treble damages and attorneys' fees against an adjudicated infringer. Dentsply Sirona's case against Edge and US Endo is scheduled for trial before a jury in Albuquerque, New Mexico beginning on August 17. At issue will be Dentsply Sirona's claims for willful infringement and damages with respect to the three claims that have already been held valid and infringed, as well as Dentsply Sirona's assertion of infringement with respect to additional patent claims.
Dentsply Sirona initiated with an Overweight at Piper Sandler » 04:4706/1606/16/20
Piper Sandler analyst…
Piper Sandler analyst Jason Bednar initiated coverage of Dentsply Sirona with an Overweight rating and $51 price target. The analyst is concerned "pandemic damage" to the structural support of the dental market combined with growing secular headwinds could make for a protracted recovery in dental procedure demand. However, Bednar likes Dentsply's chances of navigating the current environment better than others given its "diverse and market-leading" product portfolio and clear aligner platform in SureSmile that "should gain increased traction over time." This is a dental name investors should own, says the analyst.

Dentsply Sirona downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Barrington » 08:1605/1105/11/20
Barrington analyst Michael Petusky downgraded Dentsply Sirona to Market Perform from Outperform without a price target.

The analyst sees easier ways to yield returns in 2020 and 2021.
