Benzinga featured looks at many investor favorite stocks over the past week.

Bullish calls included a number of leading tech stocks.

Bearish calls included retailers and a newly minted merger.

The new earnings reporting season began this past week, and the broader markets eked out very modest gains. The Nasdaq is up more than 3 percent since the end of May, leading the S&P 500 and Dow Jones industrials. The trade war between the United States and China and prospects for further rising interest rates continue to serve as overhangs. 

As usual, Benzinga continues to feature looks at the prospects for many investors' favorite stocks. Here are just a few of this past week's most bullish and bearish posts that may be worth another look.
