    Well. a lot has to do on who or what it is for. It's probably better for someone looking for a high dividend yielding stock, the dividend is a whopping 5.6% and seems to be pretty safe. They have very good earnings power, earning over $4 a share last year, and are a large cap, blue chip company. They are big so for a younger investor perhaps looking for high growth and smaller capitilazation this not be the greatest company in the pharma sector.

    There earnings are projected to be slower and decrease net year, as well as their revenues, and growth rate decline into the negative range. http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ae?s=LLY+Analyst+Estima...

    While the high dividend looks ok, I would not buy it but look for another name in that sector, like ALXN Alexion or GILD or Gilead Sciences coming out with a Lupus Drug, or DNDN Dendreon, or smaller biotechnology company ISIS.
