5 Bullish Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them

Eli Lilly discovers, develops, manufactures, and sells pharmaceutical products worldwide. The company's neuroscience products treat schizophrenia, mixed/manic episodes, and bipolar maintenance; depression, diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain, anxiety disorders, fibromyalgia, and chronic musculoskeletal pain; attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders; obsessive-compulsive and panic disorders, and bulimia nervosa; and bipolar and treatment-resistant depression. Eli Lilly trades an average of 8.4 million shares per day with a market cap of $57 billion.

52 Week Range: $35.46 to $53.99

Book Value: $12.79

Price To Book: 4

Earnings Payout Percentage: 54%

The shares have moved higher 36% over the last 52 weeks. Analysts are calling for a price target of $50.36. A quick look at the chart displays the fact that "we did that, done that before" and the trend is your friend so far. I recommended Lilly a few months ago, and that worked out well.

After the recent pullback in price, Eli Lilly is once again in the kill zone. Investors are receiving $1.96 in dividends for a yield of 3.8%. A very nice yield for a company demanding only 14 times earnings to buy a share.

In the last month, the stock has really moved higher with a 11.6% increase. Since the start of the year, it appears the shares are up over 25%. Again, the pullback gives the stock a chance to breathe, and it may trade down near $50 a share due to the "round number" effect, but take that as a buying opportunity.

Presently, based on the float ,the short interest is unimportant and not a worry. The small amount of short interest is 1.9%. I would keep an eye on this number after the election for clues in the market direction into 2013. LLY Dividend Chart LLY Dividend data by YCharts
