it makes a ton of sense.  GILD has significantly outperformed the market, and with many biotech/pharma companies not doing so well, it looks like traders on average made a bet that GILD would follow that trend.

I would say this isn't just a win for GILD and it's longs, but one for transparency.  Because if you had seen a huge runup in GILD you would be skeptical that there would be insider trading.  Since it went down so big, you KNOW that no one was privy to these results beforehand.

My hats off to a company that actually has ethics, morals, and follows the rules.  Good for them.
