E Daily Stock Analysis: Gilead Sciences

GILD Dividends

Gilead's most recently declared quarterly dividend was $0.68 payable December 30th. Dividends are estimated to total $2.72 per share annually and yield 4.45% at yesterday's $61.17 closing price.

GILD Gains?

Adding the $2.72 annual anticipated dividend to my $8.83 optimistic estimate of Gilead Sciences Inc's price upside shows an $11.55 potential gross gain, per share, to be reduced by any costs to trade the shares.  

Put little under $1,000.00 today in Gilead Sciences Inc at $61.17 and we would buy 16 shares of GILD stock.

A $10 broker fee (if any) paid half at purchase and half at sale could cost us about $0.63 per share.

Subtract that maybe $0.63 brokerage cost from my estimated $11.55 gross gain per share results in a net gain of $10.91 X 16 shares = $174.72 for a 17.5% net gain on a $978.72 investment.

So it goes that Gilead Sciences Inc shows a possible 17.5% net gain including a 4.45% dividend yield. It could be more, it could be less. 

All of the estimates above are speculation based on the past history of Gilead Sciences Inc. Only time and money invested in this stock will determine its worth.
