More people with healthcare = more blood tests. I was there Friday - 2 hour wait. I left. Came back Monday - only 1.25 hour wait. There are only 2 choices for blood tests, and your insurance only uses one. So you have no choice really. Like Chipoltle - long lines, but people wait. It's the only place you can go.

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.

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.

Purely technical decision related to overall near-term weakness in the healthcare sector vs. the market. This is a great company I've owned long before and made a nice return that would have been even nicer if I held it longer. Using this near-term pan to help me track my expected pullback in different healthcare issues I like to hopefully be able to get back into them at lower prices.
