Deutsche Bank maintained a Buy rating on Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) with a price target of $95.00. Analyst Robyn Karnauskas views week 3 scripts as strong despite the holiday, and said Q4 sales were track at $53 million.

"IMS recently released wk #3 scripts for Sovaldi and our calculations indicate US 4Q’13 sales $53M. Consensus is modeling 4Q numbers at $73M. Second week new patient starts were 797 vs. 834 in wk #2. This figure does not include wholesale inventory. The slight decline is likely due to Xmas. For comp, we note that Wk #3 numbers for Incivek were 457 while it was 321 for Victrelis. At peak, weekly NRx number was 1445 for Incivek (wk #23) & 465 for Victrelis (wk #17).These Sovaldi trends are very early in the launch as we just have three week of scripts," said Karnauskas.
