    Your comment is pure false filth, and you reveal your leftist pedigree. No, Hillary and her trash supporters, which range from illegals looking for free hand-outs in everything, to the corrupt political establishment and their dirty money from lobbyists and the wealthy that benefit from a political system corrupt to the core, as the Democratic Party is corrupt to the core. Out with your falsehoods and defamation of conservatives, when your side is the epitome of true corruption and the advancement of socialist and Marxist transformation of the US.

    Walt, I'm not sure if your comment was a true compliment or was sarcasm. Do you want to know what I had to go through to get this information? I had to call Investor Relations 4 times, only to be told that they don't know any information on the court hearing! Absolutely amazing, and shows what type of company they are. I told him that I would call the court myself to get thei information, but he didn't even want to provide that little information. His arrogance was unbelievable. After remarking that he expected me to spend a large amount of my time to simply find out the court this was in? He knew it, and more, all along, so that is a representative of Gilead. I finally get just the most basic information that it is the circuit court in San Jose. I had to then call there, and the operator, with some difficulty, finally helped me go to their website and how to look up the only female judge's docket for today. All this, since the jerk at IR wouldn't even provide her name. The judge's docket showed GILD vs. MRK at 9am as a bench trial. Now, who on this board would go through this? No one, or the information would have been here. Does anyone appreciate the information or what I went through to get it? NO.

    No, how about 450 or 600? Such pie-in-the-sky foolishness.

    That's ridiculous. If you had listened to the CC, and looked at the graphs as they were explained, you'd know something about what you're talking about, which you don't.

    You're simply parroting the leftist media trash that has fabricated this lie that Trump will be worse on biotechs. And this isn't the first time that you've defended Hillary. Someone who has lied, broken numerous laws, aided Radical islamic countries as a result of filthy huge financial contributions to the Clinton Foundation, whose dirty laundry is already been brought on in part. So, ranting about Hillary is fully warranted; unless you want to be the continued destruction of the US accelerated in full gear if she gets elected.

    It's not a fantasy. People need to read the Conference Call, which provides a much different picture when you see all the clever developments that Fireeye has and is developing, which puts the rest of the cybersecurity group in a catch-up game.

  • arts.crafts2 arts.crafts2 Apr 20, 2016 5:15 PM Flag

    Get your leftist, lying junk out of here. Hillary is a criminal who should be indicted and imprisoned, as should Obama. Your clever statement that she has never been charged, is meaningless. She WILL be charged for Benghazi, her illegal email debacle, and for what illegal filth the Clinton Foundation has done, giving weapons, tanks, favors to 15+ Jihadist countries in return for their donations. Your Demorats are the destroyers of our economy and our Constitution and what type of country it dictates the US should be. Leftists/socialists/progressives have forced us into a debt-ridden, over-taxed to the max, open border cesspool.

  • arts.crafts2 arts.crafts2 Jun 15, 2016 12:36 PM Flag

    Your throwing in your political leanings with your comment on Trump makes your whole post distasteful. If you're foolish enough to vote for Clinton, and are that ignorant of the myriad of her criminal actions, take it to a political board.

    Why post this overly speculative nonsense with nothing in the wings, other than that this volatile stock decided to go up today?

  • stop the bleeding. I bought back in Friday & Monday, and I could kick myself, because, like most posters here, it seems a given that this is falling every day.

    I called Investor Relations a couple of weeks ago, spoke to a female (she is the better choice) who was willing to answer most questions. I believe she told me they don't talk about potential acquistions, but they need to hear from MANY INVESTORS, who are going to present themselves as angry shareholders who want something done, and this is what GILD''s fiduciary responsibility to shareholders is. They are simply letting this stock drop and drop, and most every source i read says it is because of a slowing Hep C market, and their failure to use some of their vast monetary resources to BUY a COMPANY that will be of value.

    This diddly-dawdling is inexcusable. Other drugs companies are making acquisitions, and it doesn't take them forever to find companies of significant value to their drug pipeline. So, GILD should not have a problem as they are in many of the same disease areas that others are.

    PLEASE, take the few minutes to call there. If you get voice mail, say you are very upset that GILD is letting the stock drop below all support, and is doing nothing, and that you want a call back.

    No, it's YOU who have been played by the brainwashing you were taught by your socialist, leftist teachers in school, but you are too blind to see it. I'm sure you are going to vote for the lying, scheming, guilty of treason, Benghazi, the 30+ radical Islamic regimes the Clinton Foundation got huge donations from for treasonist favors. That shows how ignorant you are.

    As far as Muslims are concerned, you need to do you homework. There are 1,000's of terrorist cells throughout the USA, and that is a fact. Look at the maps created by OUR government that show the thousands of dots indicating them.. Most, not all, Muslims interpret and follow their bible, the Quran, which clearly states that a major goal of Islam is to make all convert to Islam, or be put to death. Deny it all you want; that doesn't change the truth.

    If you had access to OAN (One America News), a truly exceptional TV broadcaster which Comcast, Dish, DirectTV - all but Uverse from AT&T, have refused to broadcast, despite the fact that they are the least expensive of any news broadcasting station, you could watch impeccably produced videos of Islam, where interviews of active Jihadists, and interviews of those who were Jihadists but saw the light and came to the hard realization that the whole movement was one of sick annihilation.

    But, I doubt with someone like you, that ANYTHING will penetrate your radicalized head.

    And, by the way, this is not a political board, so instead of proliferating your leftist propaganda, simply ignore any postings you don't like. I HAD to answer the nonsense you had to post here. Oh, and yes, the poster you rail on and on about, using your tired, leftist answers like, "You blame Muslims and immigrants for your problems when they are your own," is utter rubbish. The problems and destruction of our culture and rights as a sovereign nation you apparently have no respect for.

    I'm a new owner, and have seen conflicting information on OLN. There are no analysts listed in Tip Ranks (contains most of the major analysts that have a price target above $18. Barchart has a 96% Strong Buy.

    On this board, I found a lot of negativity. Since you are Bullish on the stock, and seem to have considerable knowledge of the stock, could you please give me your basic analysis of the stock? I do not understand your statements re: a deal closing in Oct. or later, or the $9.00 v $22.00 two years out reference. Ditto for RAD mgmt. selling out to Boots.

    It seems like a very old company, with a history of spin-offs, splits, reverse splits.

    It is not comforting that they give no time for earnings. Even calling Investor Relations, I got the manager's assistant, and she said, "In the next hour or two" and that was prior to 4 pm EST. Then I called again about 5:20pm, and she tells me that they are finalizing figures (!), and earnings should be out in the next hour or so.

    Here I sit at 5:33 EST, and NOTHING. None of this leaves me with any

    Thank you, you're a decent, nice person.

  • arts.crafts2 arts.crafts2 May 5, 2016 6:19 PM Flag

    if you had listened to the CC, you'd have a much better understanding. They pretty much proved to me that many of their business orders will not be filled, thus not accounted for in this report, in the next quarter. That's why the stock initially dropped to 13.09 & then was trading around 15.00 during the Call.

  • arts.crafts2 arts.crafts2 Apr 28, 2016 8:38 PM Flag

    Yes, yes. But try to get enough of these big windbags who proclaimed what a blow-out quarter this would be. They won't put their money where their mouth is. This is the general manner in which the average citizen is in the US. They don't get involved and fight like they do in other countries. They just allow themselves to be led around like animals for this Administration, the Left, and the Democrats, and do nothing.

  • arts.crafts2 arts.crafts2 May 3, 2016 4:29 PM Flag

    Note the d***head analyst who comes out with a "falls after most quarters" article 7 min before close. Now, that timing was purposeful and contradicts what most other analysts say, which is that FEYE has price targets of an average of 23.18 with the highest estimate of $35.

    leadership is pathetic

    This never stops. Every day it is down more than the day before, and closes near a pathetic low. I'm tired of reading about this development, that development -- they do NOTHING for the stock. This has got to be one of the screwed up drug companies. Simply compare it to the price action on the major drug companies, and companies similar to GILD. Even with the dividend, NOTHING is saving this stock. There is something serious wrong with how this company is run.

  • Obviously Thursday's upcoming earnings are driving the stock up. Let's hope it continues Tues-Thurs., and that earnings will be met by the market positively, which is something I don't think anyone can know.

    I think expectations will be quite high, and the history of high-flying stocks have been that they report well, and unless absolutely blowing the doors off, many of them fall, as there is considerable profit-taking.

    Your take?

  • arts.crafts2 arts.crafts2 Apr 11, 2016 5:03 PM Flag

    Looking at the tape every day, over a long time period, as I have, it is absolutely clear there are unsavory ties that manipulate the h*ll out of it. Just look at its price action today - that's enough to demonstrate this is the case. With all the new drugs, and the huge pipeline, this stock should be continuing to go up and up and up,.
