He likes the yield. He believes they are making some headway on a CVT-19 drug on trial in China. They are also doing more M&A to bring innovation into their pipeline. They are working on liver disease drugs and HIV drugs. They have a clean balance sheet as well. Yield 3.68% (Analysts’ price target is $75.22)

It's a little speculative, because they could invent the coronavirus vaccine. In the past they found the hepatitis C cure. Gilead did very well until a few years ago. Now, their earnings and stock are half of their historic peak.

It is less of a diversified company than big pharma. He is not big on investment in this sector. It is a tough place to be. It would be better at a lower price.

Very disappointing. The update from the new CEO wasn't particularly exciting. Their HIV prep drugs is doing well. However with the Hepatitis C drug coming off patent, they have lost revenues. Deep value but they need to execute. They like the high yield with great premiums on the options. He would rather own another diversified biotech or a basket.

It has been a bit of a value trap for years. They were effective in the cure for HEP-C. For them it has been a declining revenue steam. They made an acquisition that did not work out. Revenues have dropped 40% over the last 5 years. He would stay clear of it.

It's been painful as it consolidates for the past 18 months. They have a hepatitis franchise, an expensive drug, that came off patent. Gilead failed to reinvest those profits, too. Their HIV franichise is doing very well. They acquired some companies, which look promising. The CEO is doing a good job. They are trading 9.5x fowarding earnings. Great dividend yield and balance sheet.

He's owned this for four years, but it's struggled in the past two as they've transitioned from their hepatitis C drug era (limited growth). But they just announced great results on a new HIV drug. It's a value trap though looking cheap at 9x earnings. Pays a 3.8% dividend. They still generate lots of cash flow. He'd stick with it. At least you get that yield. Also, they just got a new CEO, so they're in transition.

A frustrating stock. They have expensive drugs, such as for hepatitis C. They failed to build out their franchise and not making acquisitions, and have only been doing that in the past few years. Their HIV franchise is doing quite well, though. They acquired Kite Pharma which could be a game-changer later. It's trading at 10x earnings. Upcoming catalysts are a liver study in Q1/Q2 could be positive. Maybe. But is GILD a value trap or opportunity? Buy it as its chart improves.

Value play. It's been hammered, trading at around 10X future PE, cheap. The market is valuing their HCV business to basically zero, and that's the side of the business that's been hurt with the generics coming out and pushing the prices lower. Their HIV business has been doing pretty well. New CEO coming in, they have $32B in cash and waiting to see how this cash will be spent. Yield 3.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $86.95)

This is a US biotechnology company. They are big on treatments for HIV and hepatitis. It trades at a cheap valuation. There is competition from other big pharma and generics and biologics. It is reasonably cheap but depends on finding new markets for their drugs.

Has long owned it and likes it. They had some bad years when they overpriced their hepatitis C drug and received bad press. They also sell HIV and heart drugs, sectors that are growing. They increased their guidance last week, a rarity these days. At 10x earnings, he'd buy it, not sell it. One overhang is that their CEO is leaving.

Looking at the graph it has been in a very difficult position in the last coupe of years. They essentially cured hepatitis C. It was an expensive drug. $98,000 per patient. It has come off patent. Competitors came to produce it now. They have been on the penalty box for the past year and a half. But they are making inroads on other drugs. They have had meaningful trials. At this value there is a good opportunity.

Gilead is trading at 10.5x next year's earnings, and just increased its dividend. They're losing sales on their hepatitis C franchise which was a winner for them three years ago. But they have advances in oncology through a recent purchase. Good, new drug products are coming out which could lead to growth. Lots of free cash flow and some buybacks. They need, however, growth to justify high valuations. This will be a slow road, but a good one. (Analysts' price target: $85.72)

It's been painful to own. Their primary drug cured hepatitis C, the holy grail. But there's little recurring revenue here, and it disappointed investors by not reinvesting their cash. However, their new HIV franchise could take market share. A hated stock for a long time, but that sentiment is now changing. Your patience is now being rewarded.
