  • Benzinga has examined the prospects for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • This week’s bullish calls included tech giants and a top biotech.
  • An aerospace giant and the electric vehicle leader were among the week’s bearish calls.

This past week was a busy one, leaving investors much to ponder as the month of July concluded. After congressional testimony from big tech chiefs, followed by big tech earnings, and after a mixed view from the Federal Reserve, corporate surprises and shakeups, and a historically bad gross domestic product report, the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 managed to end the week with small gains, while the Dow Jones industrials pulled back fractionally.

As usual, Benzinga continues to examine the prospects for many of the stocks most popular with investors. Here are some of this past week’s most bullish and bearish posts that are worth another look.
