Thanks for that! To add, Merck tried to break in but didn't have as good efficacy. I hear rumblings about other firms developing, but so far Gilead had been reaping the rewards (note that the R&D folks work like dogs there, more so than most other places, from all what I've been told)

Closing my entire FB position for good tomorrow, 75% return. I've lost conviction, and Zuckerberg is too in control. I don't like him, or FB policies. I'm worried this social media garbooge is reaching an inflection point of malaise.

I saw the documentary Facebookistan, which didn't change my views too much, but there was one poignant moment where a hidden camera was placed in a store. When a customer came in to buy a pastry or whatever, the cashier forced them to divulge some private info before they could pay. Home phone, last 4 texts you sent, wife's email, where were you yesterday at 8pm, skype handle, who you bank with, etc. The cashier said "its so we can get to know our customers better". People were puzzled, yet FB does this to users constantly, just quietly. Why one is fine and the other generates a reaction is baffling.

Never been a user, just a shareholder, and now I simply don't like the business anymore.

You'd be surprised, the hardest working R&D people are never where you expect.

 

Gilead's drug was engineered brilliantly. I always use it as a story when trying to disprove the cure vs treatment conspiracy people get into, but they never really listen.

One formulations scientist I know who was hired got stock options with retrograde pricing... she got them at 50 and instantly they jumped to 100 (well now 85ish).

Maybe I'm in the wrong side of things!

Market is pushing HARD for a new all time high. Thinking of cashing out and buying back in Monday.

Pretty sure that if the market does end up with an all-time high, you'll see either a further optimism-driven upward spike or profit taking-driven dip. Calling it now.

The market could go up or down!  The favorite could win the match or lose in an upset!  News at 11.
