Determine the 15th of the following month

I need to determine the 15th of the following month in an Oracle Select statement based on a date field.

select sysdate             "MY DATE",
           add-code-here "THE 15TH"
from   dual

sysdate is substituted here in place of a database field.

This code works except for when the selected date falls in December

select to_date(
         -- compute year
         to_char(sysdate,'yyyy') ||
         -- compute month
         substr(to_char('00' || (to_char(sysdate,'mm') + 1)),-2,2) ||
         -- add day
         '15',
         'yyyymmdd') "CAL DATE"
from dual

Maybe something like:
select trunc(add_months(to_date('&mydate','MM/DD/YYYY'),1),'MM')+14 from dual;
