At least your honest, which is a virtue of most of the LLY employees. Thank you for making my point regarding LLY internal implosion---the us v. the cruel world mentality is alive and well in bldg 72 and beyond.
But last I looked, LLY was a public company, not the federal govt (which IS the mentality--"leave us alone?"--that was precious). Sorry, but you work for ME, the shareholder. I will not tolerate 4 yrs of flatline. You think the institutions will tolerate 4 yrs of death?
Funny, haven't heard about this great pipeline--but 4 yrs is a long time, even in the drug industry--this means your counting on phase II drugs, most of which will fail. (just of a cold hard fact of research).
Believe it our not, I clearly understand your point. LLY sits in exclusion from the rest of the pharma world, almost exclusively due to its location in Indy. Run up the road to Kalamazoo (Upjohn) if you think poor performance and flat stock price will keep you independent.
