  • Benzinga has featured looks at many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • Retailers were featured in both bullish and bearish calls.
  • Sentiment on the iPhone maker was mixed as well last week.

The major U.S. indexes ended the past week modestly lower. It was a week in which oil extended its losing streak, fires in California claimed too many lives, Amazon finally selected its new headquarters, and investors were still deciding how they wanted to position themselves after the midterm elections.
