Purchase
Timing:  We bought near the six month high.
Reason:  The company is well-positioned in a growing segment of the industry and its new HIV medications will be more successful than the market currently believes.

Sale
Timing:  0
Reason:  We trimmed our position so that GILD represented only 5% of our portfolio value. Gilead's price dropped significantly following our initial purchase. We added to our position. The price has risen since then. GILD still has a strong market for several of its drugs, particularly for hepatitis treatment. However, several other companies are developing alternative therapies, which also made trimming our exposure prudent.
