Interesting Information

My economics class bought stock in Gilead Labs last year and it is looking like it was a good choice. The stock is out performing the major indexes and it is also doing some social good. It has teamed with Merk Labs and is trying to create a once a day AIDS prevention pill for females. The goal would be to provide this drug at low cost in poor countries (mainly Africa). I had never heard of this company before last year and none of my students had ever invested before last year but together we learned about a nice company, investing and AIDS prevention. Not bad for a high school econ class.
