    Reduction in staff

    I for one think a reduction in staff is a good thing if it produces a better bottom line, Apparently someone who knows thinks that is a good thing for the company and the stockholders, have none of you people ever run a company? Believe me, firing people in my company has led to a better bottom line many more times than not. Look at the bright side instead of being negative.....

    • It is a sign that they see the writing on the wall and that they do not have the business to keep that many people busy. Next is the big revenue drop, I guess that is good for your company too? Take your profits now and thank them for the runnup. I do it all the time without emotion, except for that of gratitude.
      The ag sector is ready to run now.

    • LLY is going to lose 40% of their gross income in the next 14 months..they have no pipeline of which to speak..Theyhave to fire 1/2 of all employees to make money..
      The stock is up because ETFs have to buy the shares as demand from dopey investors buy the ETF..
      LLY is a great short sale candidate

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • You just don't understand. This company is hq'd in the middle of b*tt #$%$ hicksville. They have always used life-long job security to secure staff. Lilly just broke a promise of five generations. It's toast.
