IMO, the issue with the loss of business to Lab Corp is not the deal itself (these things happen) but management's reaction to it. Here's a thread from another Board on the subject:http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=25088033&sort=whole&vstest=search_042607_linkdefaultDGX's price has held pretty firm since then, but my opinion is the same. A local radio station in NYC (WCBS) has actually been running cheesy scripted ads where the Doc is extolling the virtues of using Quest to process lab results. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see how this is an intelligent use of marketing resources. Managed care in the 21st Century just doesn't work like that.
