Eli Lily shares have outperformed the industry Zacks Large Cap Pharmaceuticals over the past year (+42.6% vs. +17.7%) on the back of a strong core drug portfolio in diabetes, autoimmune diseases and the cancer. Lilly’s revenue growth is driven by drugs like Trulicity, Taltz and others.

It regularly adds promising new pipeline assets through business development agreements. It has an exciting pipeline of potential new drugs, including tirzepatide for type II diabetes and donanemab for early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. Both candidates have multi-billion dollar sales potential.

However, generic competition for several drugs, increasing pricing pressure in the United States, mainly on key drugs, Trulicity, and price reductions in some international markets such as China, Japan and Europe are headwinds.

ThermoFisher shares have outperformed industry Zacks Medical – Instruments over the past year (+1.4% vs -25.8%). This reflects the company’s favorable growth prospects in the Analytical Instruments and Laboratory Products and Biopharmaceutical Services segments.

The company’s strategic acquisitions of PPD, Inc. and PeproTech bolster investor confidence. Thermo Fisher’s accelerated investments to expand biomanufacturing capacity also bolster optimism. Optimistic forecasts for 2022 indicate that this growth momentum will continue.

However, the year-over-year revenue decline in the specialty diagnostics segment is disappointing. The contraction of the two margins does not bode well either.

TotalEnergies stocks have gained +13.8% over the past year versus Zacks Oil and Gas – Refining and Marketing’s +36.4% gain. The company benefits from new startups, rising commodity prices, well-distributed LNG assets and an expanding upstream portfolio that is exposed to fast-growing hydrocarbon-producing regions.

TTE is rationalizing its portfolio through acquisitions, partnerships and divestitures. It regularly invests to expand the use of renewable energy and aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. TTE has enough cash to service its debts.

However, TTE’s profitability is likely to have been affected by the natural decline of oil and natural gas deposits. TTE remains exposed to acquisition risks as these assets contribute a significant volume of production. TTE has operations in some politically troubled regions and the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine could affect profitability.

Zacks names ‘only one best choice for doubling up’

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts have each picked their favorite to skyrocket by +100% or more in the coming months. Of these 5, Research Director Sheraz Mian selects one to have the most explosive advantage of all.

It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% year-on-year, but still very cheap. With relentless demand, rising earnings estimates for 2022 and $1.5 billion for stock buybacks, retail investors could step in at any time.

This company could rival or surpass other recent Zacks stocks which are expected to double, such as Boston Beer Company which jumped +143.0% in just over 9 months and NVIDIA which jumped +175.9% in one. year.
