Benzinga examined the prospects for many investors' favorite stocks over the last week — here's a look at some of our top stories. 

Wall Street ended the Thanksgiving-shortened trading week on a high note, as the holiday shopping season officially kicked off on Friday. The S&P 500 finished the week up by 1.51%, the Dow Industrial Average was up 2.20% and the Nasdaq Composite was down by a slight 0.27% for the week.

The National Retail Federation is anticipating 166 million people to make holiday purchases from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday.

Investors, meanwhile, are turning their attention to the upcoming Federal Reserve meeting in December. On Wednesday, the Federal Open Market Committee released its November meeting minutes, and the Fed's language suggests it's likely to slow the pace of its interest rate hikes to 0.5% in December.

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