However, both adjusted earnings from continuing operations and revenues came up short of analysts' views. The Madison, New Jersey-based company posted a third quarter net income of $405.1 million, or $2.68 per share, up significantly from the $163.1 million, or $1.01 per share, earned in the same quarter a year ago.

On an adjusted basis, the company's net income from continuing operations was $154 million, or $1.02 per share, in the third quarter. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn an adjusted $1.17 per share in the quarter. Quest Diagnostics' net revenues in the quarter edged lower to $1.79 billion from $1.82 billion in the prior year. On average, analysts were expecting the company to post revenues of $1.82 billion in the third quarter. Looking ahead to full year results, the company expects earnings from continuing operations to come in between $3.85 and $3.95 per share; previously, Quest Diagnostics had estimated earnings to be between $4.35 and $4.50 per share in fiscal 2013. Revenues are now expected to be 3.5% lower than fiscal 2012 revenues. Analysts are expecting the company to see earnings of $4.23 per share on revenues of $7.22 billion in fiscal 2013.
