  • Benzinga has examined the prospects for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • This week's bullish calls included e-commerce and pharmaceutical giants.
  • The house that Warren Buffett built is featured among the bearish calls.

The Dow Jones industrials and the S&P 500 ended last week with 3% or so gains, while the Nasdaq was up nearly 2%.
