Straumann Holding AG (SAUHF) might move higher on growing optimism about its earnings prospects, which is reflected by its upgrade to a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
Swiss dental implant maker Straumann Holding AG said on Thursday it expected elevated consumer spending to last at least until the fourth quarter after it topped first-half growth forecasts and raised full-year sales outlook. The dental care market has benefited from increased demand for speciality treatments such as implants as practices reopened following an easing of coronavirus-related lockdowns. "Clinicians with whom we talked to were all very positive about agenda being booked and being fully booked," chief executive Guillaume Daniellot told analysts, adding he did not see any negative impact on demand at least until the fourth quarter.
