  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Quest Diagnostics’ fourth-quarter 2016 earnings exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimate while revenues remained in line. The company has witnessed significant growth through infectious disease testing, prescription drug monitoring and wellness business. We expect these growth drivers to be active through the coming quarter as well. In this regard, over the past three months, Quest Diagnostics has traded above the Zacks categorized Medical - Outpatient and Home Healthcare industry. The upside is backed by the successful execution of the company’s strategy to grow its esoteric testing and drive profitable growth. Within prescription drug monitoring, the company currently has two new Zika tests that are awaiting FDA clearance. The company also piloted a noninvasive prenatal screening program to serve women of average risk. We are also looking forward to the company's latest alliance with Ancestry and IBM." (1/30/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We are maintaining our Hold on DGX given our view that significant multiple expansion is unlikely from its current 10-year high P/E. That said, we do not expect its valuation to crack either given the company's stable fundamentals, the emerging opportunity with hospital labs, consistent dividend & buybacks, potential upside from US tax reform, and the composition of its shareholder base."
