Bulls And Bears Of The Week: CBS, Disney, Mattel, Uber And More

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

Earnings results prompted many of the most bullish and bearish calls last week.

Those calls included some entertainment and consumer goods giants.

The big U.S. indexes managed to end the past week with marginal gains, despite volatility that included the worst trading day so far this year. In the wake of more mass shootings, oil prices continued to fall, Treasury yields slumped and concerns over the trade war and a possible recession continued.

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