Bulls And Bears Of The Week: Apple, Nike, Tesla, Uber And More

Benzinga has examined prospects for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.

Bullish calls included a potential G-20 winner and a company facing another scandal.

Bearish calls included various companies struggling against low expectations.

Though the big U.S. indexes ended the holiday-shorted week only marginally higher, they remain at or near record highs. It was a week that saw some movement on trade issues, additional moves by OPEC and its partners, better-than-expected jobs numbers and the passing of a corporate icon.

Benzinga continues to examine the prospects for many of the stocks most popular with investors. The following are just a few of the past week's most bullish and bearish posts that may be worth another look.
