Recent Stock Purchase -- Gilead Sciences (GILD)

On 05/07/15, I purchased 50 shares Gilead Sciences (NYSE: GILD) at $100.50/share.  Here are the details of this transaction:-

 Gilead Sciences, Inc. recently announced that the company's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.43 per share of common stock, to be paid on the payment date of June 29, 2015 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on the record date of June 16, 2015. This is the first quarterly dividend declared under the Board's dividend program announced on February 3, 2015.  Future dividends will be subject to Board approval.

At the same time, I have a put written on GILD, strike price at $95, and expiration date on 05/15/15.


  1. Like the short duration put. There is good premium to be captured near the money.

  2. Great job getting GILD on the dip. It is a wildcat, and could go anywhere. It is one of the solid biotech companies though.
