Dear Al, First, I like to welcome you to the Fools Board
and wish you good luck with all of your investment

As to your question.. I have not so good news......
only because I never got involved in "Puts" and "Calls",
they are too much for my brain. Very confusing.

I just buy stocks....mostly "long" and some times "short"
and of course I trade. But not very often. I am not a day
trader. I see my self as an investor

My suggestion to you about Gilead, is to do what I did.
Buy the stock and leave it alone.

I bought mine.... "in September.....2002"......the price,
around $35.00 per share. Since then the company has
split its shares 2 for 1, twice....

One hundred shares in 2002, to day would be "400"
and with the new split "800"! So you do the math.

You only need a... little...patience.....and good
things will come to you. I take it that you are quite
young and you can wait.

The Eternal Bird
