    DGX/Quest

    Although I have been a greatful beneficiary of lh's stock runup over a five year period I kept my eye on DGX for a bisis of comparison. DGX has dropped from 90 to 50 (now 60) as a result of LH's earnings warnings which we now know weren't so bad. Meanwhile DGX posted above forcast earnings as well as a good long term forcast (25% year) and it is still 60. Yes I know that their PE is higher but if you look at the overall picture, its good. I am not going to sell LH and switch but am thinking adding DGX to strengthen my position in healthcare, of maybe buy some option calls, Any thoughts?
