Bottom line, BENEFIT-ALS trial did not achieve its primary efficacy endpoint, the mean change from baseline in the ALS Functional Rating Scale in its revised form (ALSFRS-R) on tirasemtiv versus placebo (-2.98 points in the tirasemtiv group versus -2.40 points in the placebo group, p = 0.11). Another ambitious attempt to decrease some of ALS burden on the sufferers has disappointed.

Taking down Gilead (GILD) seems to be beyond the reach authors of tales intended to frighten investors into selling this outstanding stock. The attempts have been repetitive but short of success. Gilead is a stallion. Unlike stallions, the horses whose muscular superiority over other horses is genetically derived, Gilead’s power is acquired through a unique culture that embraces the power of intuition, self-confidence, common sense and courage.

Gilead Sciences (GILD): Fingers of traders on the sell button as of a routine practice has produced an initial decline in GILD price after refreshing financial results. The firm has exceeded analysts’ exaggerated expectations.
