Value is why i picked GILD . In my opinion it is about as safe a bet as anything out there. GILD has a lot of upside potential and a decent dividend. I like to buy a stock that even if it goes down temporarily i trust it would come back on solid fundamentals and i could at least end up in the green eventually. I think GILD is a good pick for long term hold or as a trade. Good luck to all.
I will wait until it goes a at least a dollar over where i bought it. If it goes up more than that and looks strong i`ll hold until it shows signs of weakness either in of itself or if the entire market begins to wane.
