    Why GILD Estimates are RAISED !!!

    Viread numbers could be cooked. aids cocktails not the cure all.

    • GILD's books are NOT cooked. Even if they weren't honest (which I believe they are) they have no incentive to do so since their sales and profits are growing much faster than expectations. Companies that cook their books invariably do so because they can't meet expectations.

      Besides, several analysts recently raised their estimates on GILD because script data shows that Viread sales are growing significantly faster than GILD forecast. GILD has no way to manipulate independent script data, so it is clear that the rapid growth in Viread sales is real -- not an accounting fiction.

    • What kind of crap is this? Steverwang1 said "VIREAD NUMBERS COULD BE COOKED. AIDS COCKTAILS NOT THE CURE ALL."

      AIDs cocktails don't "Cure" anything, they treat the virus in order to allow the patient to lead a semi-normal life. There isn't a "Cure" for AIDs, nor is there a vaccine coming out anytime soon. Even if there were a successful vaccine, millions of current patients (40 mil+ world wide) would still have to depend on drugs like Viread.

      If you knew anything about GILD or the AIDs/HIV market, you would never have written the crap that you did.
