  • My Thoughts On Gilead Sciences' Capital Raise [View article]
    Wonderful suggestion in this well-thought out article. GLD needs to shed the "one trick pony" label that has been placed on it. Diversifying into new space with an appropriate acquisition is precisely what the company needs to propel its value for its shareholders.

One analyst estimates the deal, which affects 1,900 employees, could be worth €200M ($261M), depending on the patents involved. NSN has been busy slashing jobs and selling off product lines (I, II, III) this past year. The company's operating profit saw a €410M Q/Q improvement in Q3. [View news story]
