My doctor said that I now have to have my bloodwork done at labcorp because of Obamacare. I assume millions of other people who have had their bloodwork done at Quest etc., will also have to start using labcorp as well. This should help the LH stock.

If/when there's a market pull back, this company will likely not fall as much as the S&P 500. Defensive stock. Outperform.

- Duopoly with DGX for pretty much all health care screening and testing in the United States.

- The future looks bright for both as more people have access to "cheaper" healthcare, and the government starts paying the tab.

This, along with Quest Diagnostics, are the only two medical diagnostics Companies to choose from, so BOTH will be beneficiaries of the ACA. All plays on H.C are sage IMO as Obamacare is going to do the complete opposite of its' stated mission of driving costs down. THEY WILL BE DRIVEN UP, and any/all companies in the H.C.sector related to O-Sham-A-Care stand to profit handsomely.

Fool yoder motley fool: this post is almost impossible to write on my iPhone. You are denying all your members my brilliant healthcare picks due to your mobile ignorance. If this was a touch easier maybe I would be telling members that the big labs are losing share to the increasingly big hospital networks that are increasingly armed with efficient scale diagnostics instrumentation, logistics, higher reimbursement rates (given hospital fee schedule, and xxxxxxxxx so annoyed I won't even get to yyyyyyy

Strong fundamentals, and a growing patient base, should outperform based on industry leading profitability

Low cost leader. Check the population/age curve and watch what happens with healthcare reform. Testing demand will go up and LH is my pick.

The company is concentrating efforts to develop (or acquire) technology for genetic testing, with its associated higher margins than regular routine blood tests. Coupled with its existing DNA testing facility, plus the recently acquired genetics testing arm of Genzyme, LabCorp is well-positioned for the testing needs of the future. In addition, its efforts to automate the testing process (which is currently very labor-intensive) will help keep costs low to remain competitive.

As hospitals consolidate they are acquiring primary care practices in their communities. These practices are now directing much of their lab tests to Lab Corp. True, the office & waiting rooms of Lab Corp are far from glamorous but they are highly efficient, fast, reliable and low cost. Plus you can order your own lab testing online with no need for a physician referral if you like.
