And his BiB system has uncovered breakout potential for the healthcare industry.
That led Chris to take a deep dive into the sector, and he came away with two healthcare stocks with huge upside potential…
The Best Healthcare Stock to Buy, No. 1: Eli Lilly and Co.
The first is Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY).
On Feb. 9, LLY dropped to a three-year low. Since then, it's risen 16%. That climb moved the stock to trading higher than its 50-day and 200-day moving averages.
That sort of momentum – pushing it above its moving averages – is a sign the stock is heading even higher.
In fact, the trend lines just formed a "golden cross," one of the most bullish technical indicators investors can use. In a golden cross, the 50-day moving average rises higher than the 200-day moving average, a classic bullish sign.
The last time that happened was in February 2017 when LLY was in the midst of a killer rally that sent the market up 35% over a five-month stretch.
It gets even better. Short interest grew 20% over the past month, which means a short squeeze could push the stock even higher if the rally continues.
Given that all the signals are indicating more upside, Chris has a price target on LLY of $90 per share. That's slightly above the highs of October and December. That move might give a double if investors play the $85 call with an Aug. 17, 2018 expiration.
But LLY isn't the best healthcare stock on our list…
