Investors Question True Weight of US Credit Rating - Equity Research on DENTSPLY International Inc. and Align Technology, Inc.

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - Today, released its industry report highlighting DENTSPLY International Inc. (NASDAQ: XRAY) and Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALGN). Full fundamental and technical analysis is available at

Potential upcoming credit rating downgrades and sentiment adjustments remains the top concern behind today's market. Despite the US National Gross Domestic Product beginning to move beyond high-watermark, marking a significant shift away from recessionary pressures; continued momentum relies upon maintenance of the U.S.'s coveted AAA credit rating. The US Department of Commerce has confirmed growth within first quarter 2011, opening the strong possibility of companies within sub-sectors to experience organic revenue growth in the case of rating conservation.

No matter the outcome, opportunity is being marked for investors to take advantage of equities with high-margin and specialty products. Fundamental positives in this area are provided by limited exposure to rising commodity costs. Although raw material cost increases will continue to pressure margins, well-positioned companies can leverage organic growth and general consolidation of product lines to sustain bottom-line growth. Market-wise investors are looking to build strong cash positions to take advantage of events in the coming weeks, carefully watching for value within equities boasting established pipelines and excellent growth prospects.
