Goldman Sachs upgraded Eli Lilly (NYSE: LLY) from Sell to Neutral with a price target of $54.00 (from $42.00) saying the Sola data supports optionality trade.

New solanezumab data provides a backbone for the recent "hope trade," the firm notes.

"Our skepticism was proven wrong as the data presented at ANA today demonstrates that the beta amyloid thesis is alive and well and that sola could conceivably reach the market in 3-4 years," the analyst said.
