Back on August 29, Mike Paulenoff alerted MPTrader members to his excitement about the potential for a powerful advance in Gilead Sciences (GILD), writing:
For two years, GILD has been traversing a wide (24%) range between 57-59 on the low side and 70-72 on the high side (see my attached Daily Chart). Every time GILD sinks into the vicinity of 60, it becomes relatively cheap within the range (57 stop) ahead of a traverse towards 70-72... If you are a VERY PATIENT investor who does not mind tying up money for an extended period of time, then you are risking a close under 56.50 to "be there" for the run to and above 69.00-70.00, and thereafter, towards a challenge of the upper boundary zone from 83 to 87, where GILD either will rocket into a new bull leg, or fail miserably.
My sense from the very BIG picture structural setup since 2010 is that since 2017 GILD has been biding time ahead of a forthcoming VERY BULLISH direction price catalyst (or catalysts) that will propel the stock out of its rangebound funk... Last is 62.56.
Fast-forward to last week in which indeed a catalyst unleashed GILD's bullish potential. It turned out to be a Q3 Earnings Report that far exceeded Wall Street's expectations, and as such, triggered an extremely positive investor reaction that propelled the stock above a 2-1/2 year resistance plateau from 72 to 74, toward Mikes intermediate-term target zone of 83 to 87.
GILD closed at 79.27 on Friday, a full 27% above its price when Mike first alerted MPTrader members on August 29.

More Top Calls From Mike
On May 22, we introduced a budding bullish technical setup in RIG (TransOcean Ltd) to MPTrader members, noting:"RIG (TransOcean) is up 7% today, a thrust that immensely improves the technical position of the stock. RIG exhibits an extremely powerful near and intermediate-term setup that points to a next upside target zone of 6.80 to 7.10, but when overlaid on my attached Daily Chart, projects to 8.50... last is 6.36.
Well before the Artificial Intelligence (AI) hysteria was unleashed this past Thursday by the shockingly powerful earnings report from Nvidia (NVDA) that reset expectations for the growth and revenue potential of AI, our technical pattern analysis of MRVL provided an early heads-up for MPTrader members.
Just after the start of the New Year, on January 9, Mike Paulenoff posted the following missive to MPTrader members about EWJ (Japanese Country Fund ETF):In my reading and research this weekend, my eyebrows did a bit of a backward roll when I saw the budding technical setup in EWJ.
On April 21, AAPL climbed to a new 8-month recovery high of 168.16, representing a 35% gain from the January 2023 low. We alerted MPTrader members to the new high in AAPL, but attached a yellow caution flag to the update:"AAPL continues to intrigue me technically because the stock hit a new multi-month recovery high at 168.16 on Wednesday -- 35% above its Jan 3rd low, but stalled right at its 15-month resistance line that cuts across the price axis in the vicinity of 168.
On March 20, I posted the following technical alert to MPTrader members:"FCX (Freeport-McMoRan)-- Technically, let's notice that FCX appears to be in the U-Turn phase after the completion of a 7-week 25% corrective period that successfully tested the 200 DMA last week. If the commodity complex has fully corrected its post-pandemic-inflationary spiral bull phase (think Crude Oil, down 46% from its 2022 highs), then FCX with its concentration of Copper, Gold, Silver, and Oil is poised for a resurgence of strength...
