    Read below then understand what DGX IS doing...

    1) Cutting Fat 2) Buying the unique and prerequisite piece of the upcoming "Obama Care" puzzle, of Socialized Medicine: The U Mass Lab purchase is the understated and under-understood model for the success of laboratory future (Good for quest...."real good"). REMEMBER "Obama care started in Massachusetts with Mitt Romney as Governor who at the time required all state residents to have health coverage), Automation will be the money maker of the future, (And yes, at the expense of jobs but if you are to succeed in this sector and not only hold your lead, but be the foray into the future of profitable Medical Laboratory services.,,ah and the "Piece de Resistance"...be the "GO TO" Medical laboratory because you took that ultimately ingenious step...THEN... you better be a part of Quest Diagnostics....Or just some little lab that does medical testing...and is not usually selected because they cannot compete with the new Healthcare Horizon...Oh and the lab itself?? Look at what it will be a part of...The largest Medical Service laboratory market of the North East....only to spread like Ivy....This was not a smart move, this was an unrealized, unrecognized and unassuming move,.,,,,read my post in the tears to come when Wall street analysts who are paid to predict the future of a company look back and say what I have just said today on May 8th, 2013, Ah, But they will take all the credit for my analytic insight.....Well, they need to be paid for something, now don't they?? Unfortunately they didn't see it at this moment but saw it too later than stock was this darn cheap....LOL...Hindsight is 20/20 ....

      Hospitals are doing more tests in house or buying small labs and having them done there. Recs are down, DGX is laying off left and right trying to cut costs cause they aint growing rev. nor profits. DGX has gone no where for years. THey keep buying back stock ( even at these crazy high levels) cause interest rates are at record lows. Who wouldnt take a loan at near zero % for 10 years? Ya never know when you may need that money later..when rate rise to 3, 4 or even 5%. THough i would NOT be buying DGX stock at these prices. THat's just crazy. I'd tell my broker to buy whenever the stock hits $50.
