Some investors have labeled Gilead Sciences a value trap. However, Gilead has snapped out of its slump. Analysts are modeling double-digit growth in 2022 as Gilead’s clinical pipeline and acquisitions are kicking into gear. With earnings set to jump, Gilead looks attractive at 10 times forward earnings and with a 4.15% dividend yield.
