The April report says
"Losing a key contract has caused the stock price to fall but now gives us a margin of safety to buy this premium company."

My question is, this happened in October. And the price did fall from 60s to low 50s. Why did this stock not get recommended then? Why now. What has changed. If someone can explain, I would appreciate it.

I have started to look at Quest Diagnostics(DGX). The company is a leading player in medical fluid bases diagnostics testing. I sent off for an investor information kit and printed a Value Line Report <Have on-line VL access through a community college library).

I mentioned Quest Diagnostics on the message board KahunaCFA'S Investment Musings. I will post more there s I continue my research into this company. For now, the shares selling in the mid-fifty dollar per share range, the company is significantly more expensive relative to most of the companies I usually buy for my IRA portfolio.

Kahuna, CFA
