  • Last SPLIT was 2002 (2 for 1) -STILL ONLY 100Million Shares outstanding.
    IMHO_ IF another SPLIT is announced-it could be around Dec. 9th--which would be ex-div. date (if Div. was forthcoming)
    IMHO- Theranos Departure from Lab Diagnostics-has helped LH icrease Market Share....

  • IMHO, the recent drop to the $124 level just offered an opportunity for a long term BUY. They are growing fast and I don't think they will be this cheap again.
  • As investors are you at all concerned with the terrible back office at LCA? I've been fighting them through my insurance company for six months on a service that was paid back in January. Labcorp was paid on April 26, 2016 by my insurance but I continue to be billed, in full, for the service. I call my insurance, they confirm payment, then call Labcorp. Labcorp says they will put my billing on hold and will look into it. Then a couple of months later without comment from Labcorp I get another ever escalating invoice/collection notice. This is extremely poor customer service. It seems like my only recourse is to hire an attorney that I can not afford. Maybe there are others out there with the same problem. If so we could start a class action against LCA.
  • Demise of Theranos no great surprise, but removes a potential long term negative.
  • With Theranos OUT--there is LESS Competition!
