Eli Lilly shares have gained +16.1% over the last six months against the Zacks Large Cap Pharmaceuticals industry’s gain of 8%. The Zacks analyst believes that higher demand for drugs like Trulicity and Taltz, among others has been driving Lilly’s revenue growth.

Lilly has an impressive pipeline including that for cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's. This is expected to boost its growth potential beyond 2025. Generic competition for several drugs, rising pricing pressure in the United States, as well as price cuts in international markets like China, Japan and Europe are some top-line headwinds.

The strategy to sell products at discounted prices has helped attract customers seeking both value and convenience. Mass inoculation drive as well as the stimulus package have encouraged spending across the board. In the third-quarter fiscal 2021, the company maintained its stellar comps run.
