Gilead Sovaldi Sales



January 25, 2014 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: GILD

Analysts' estimate for Sovaldi sales is very conservative. Sovaldi TRx for the 6th week is about 2500. So if I usethis figure I get 2500x50(wks)x$60,000( discounted price/patient)=$7.5B for this year. But this does not includeany sales for Europe etc. which is even a bigger market than U.S. Also, this is only 6th week after its launch andthe TRx could get to 4000-5000 per week. Thus I would say Sovaldi sales could exceed $15B easily. Am I missingsomething or the Wall Street is totally wrong?

TRx = Total Prescriptions, NRx = New Prescriptions.

An attempt to estimate the revenue potential of GILD is a good topic for a first blog post BTW, you just may have chosen a dying platform, so if you have not done so already you might want to establish a twitter presence :)

Porte, you did not just tell manirg to stop posting on CAPS and go post on Twitter instead...Tell me I am wrong about that, please!

Manirg, if you want to discuss biopharma, then Porte is the one you want to be talking to.  He does comment on the CAPS blogs that interest him and I do try to jump in and welcome first time posters.  If you will check this out, it may give you a look at the various ways people interact here.  And Porte, please pick your latest and greatest blog to add to the index there.  I was not sure which one you would want listed but you always have the best biopharma advice.

Nice to see you actively posting, how's everyone at the senior gym? I don't think portefeuille should be admonished for salting his opinion with a little humor. We fools need to have a thicker skin. Those looking for a healthcare play should read:

At the gym, I am frequently mistaken for someone in her 40's which is down right necessary.  Yesterday I exercised with a dear lady in her early 70's (she was 84) and a lady in her 60's (72).  Same thing with a lot of the guys - including my husband.  It is amazing what exercise can do for you.

Porte is fantastic, and I may have misunderstood one of his remarks.  So long as the "dying platform" is not CAPS, then I owe him an apology.  He will be the reason I end up with a Twitter account eventually, I suspect.

I love POZN.  I have made a bunch of money off of the stock and cannot wait to get prescriptions from them (I am allergic to NSAIDS)  Would you please go to the blog that I referenced and add your blog in the comments?  It is the type of thing that needs to be there.
