Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) has had a massively successful run with its hepatitis C cures Sovaldi and Harvoni, and the more I look at the market size and the companys treatment strategy, the more I become convinced this business has plenty of room to run with hep C. Even though Gilead is treating a massive number of patients 600,000 total to date and making a massive amount of money $26.8 billion in two years its only scratched the surface of the overall hepatitis C market, which is estimated to comprise 185 million people. And although the vast majority of those people live in places where treatment will be more difficult and also less profitable (like South America, Asia, and Africa Sovaldi sells for $900 in Egypt, for example, and $84,000 in the U.S.), theres still plenty of room to run in developed, profit-friendly markets, according to Motley Fool
