Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Gilead Sciences, Inc." (GILD)?

GILD manages to stay above the 200 day moving average in spite of having stayed firmly below the 200 SMA for 90% of the time in the last 52 weeks. Objectively, the long term trend is up and information from the lower level moving averages will give clues if this trend has legs. For the medium term, the 50 day moving average is generally in a trading range with a bearish downward bias. The 20 day moving average is very strong and indicates some underlying strength to the trend. GILD may however experience some profit-taking in the near term which may give good opportunities for buyers. As the long term trend is still at a nascent stage, it would be prudent to take profits when available.
