Price and Consensus Gilead Sciences, Inc. price-consensus-chart | Gilead Sciences, Inc. QuoteOur Take  Gilead’s fourth-quarter results were impressive, driven by strong Biktarvy sales and oncology sales. Per the management, 2022 saw the strongest growth since 2015 when growth was driven by the peak of HCV sales.Biktarvy remains the leading medicine for those seeking to switch to a new regimen in the United States as well as those starting treatments in both the United States and Europe. The oncology business also put up stellar business in 2022 and the label expansion of Trodelvy will further boost the franchise.However, competition from the likes of GSK GSK is stiff.Strong patient demand for the new HIV medicines (Dovato, Cabenuva, Juluca, Rukobia and Apretude) boosted GSK’s HIV franchise in 2022.Zacks Rank & Stocks to ConsiderGilead currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
