Drug stock Eli Lilly and Co (NYSE:LLY) scored a July 6 all-time high of $332.74. However, LLY could still have room to run, with support in place at the $320 area, the +10% year-to-date level, and its 80-day moving average. Eli Lilly shares have also taken out potential short-term trendlines of resistance stemming from a late-May high.

Plus, now looks like a great time to consider options, as LLY’s Schaeffer’s Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at 97 out of 100, implying Eli Lilly stock tended to beat options traders’ volatility expectations in the past.
