Deutsche Bank maintains a 'Buy' on Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) price target of $68.00 (from $65.00).

Analyst, Robyn Karnauskas, said, "We believe approval is almost certain due to positive FDA panel in May & Quad already being added to US HIV treatment guidelines...Mgmt says Quad launch will be stronger than Complera, but weaker than Atripla. Atripla sold $206M in ‘06 & Complera $49M in ’11...We expect pricing at a ~19-30% premium to Complera since Quad is more convenient than both Isentress & boosted PI markets and less tox than Atripla...In EU, Atripla is first line therapy although it sold $1B in 2011. Pro-Viread data will readout Q412, which may extend Viread patent if better than Viread."
