Outlook for 2018

Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) has lowered its guidance for fiscal 2018. It now expects adjusted EPS of $2–$2.15 compared to the previous estimate of $2.55–$2.65. The decrease represents Dentsply’s expectation of a decline in revenue for the remainder of 2018, driven by higher levels of inventory destocking at its dealer partners.
