Is DENTSPLY SIRONA under- or over-valued?

Valuing DENTSPLY SIRONA stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of DENTSPLY SIRONA's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.


DENTSPLY SIRONA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, DENTSPLY SIRONA shares trade at around 35x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.


DENTSPLY SIRONA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 18.9096. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into DENTSPLY SIRONA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


DENTSPLY SIRONA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $953 million.

Shorting DENTSPLY SIRONA shares

There are currently 2.3 million DENTSPLY SIRONA shares held short by investors – that's known as DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% down from 2.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DENTSPLY SIRONA shares can be evaluated.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). DENTSPLY SIRONA's SIR currently stands at 2.14. In other words for every 100,000 DENTSPLY SIRONA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2140 shares are currently held short.

However DENTSPLY SIRONA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares, or, against the total number of tradable DENTSPLY SIRONA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DENTSPLY SIRONA's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DENTSPLY SIRONA shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DENTSPLY SIRONA shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against DENTSPLY SIRONA.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like DENTSPLY SIRONA.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 23

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and DENTSPLY SIRONA's overall score of 23 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 26th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like DENTSPLY SIRONA is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

DENTSPLY SIRONA's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.65/100

DENTSPLY SIRONA's environmental score of 5.65 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that DENTSPLY SIRONA is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's social score

Social score: 12.07/100

DENTSPLY SIRONA's social score of 12.07 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that DENTSPLY SIRONA is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's governance score

Governance score: 7.29/100

DENTSPLY SIRONA's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that DENTSPLY SIRONA is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. DENTSPLY SIRONA scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that DENTSPLY SIRONA has managed to keep its nose clean.

DENTSPLY SIRONA share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 14.14% of net profits

Recently DENTSPLY SIRONA has paid out, on average, around 14.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DENTSPLY SIRONA shareholders could enjoy a 0.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DENTSPLY SIRONA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.41 per share.

While DENTSPLY SIRONA's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that DENTSPLY SIRONA is investing more in its future growth.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's most recent dividend payout was on 8 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares ever split?

DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your DENTSPLY SIRONA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DENTSPLY SIRONA shares which in turn could have impacted DENTSPLY SIRONA's share price.

DENTSPLY SIRONA share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.6368 up to $69.2928. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XRAY.US volatility(beta: 0.92)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while DENTSPLY SIRONA's is 0.9153. This would suggest that DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
