  • Benzinga has featured a look at many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • However, much of the attention last week was on the latest launches from the iPhone maker.
  • Reactions to the event show the company's pervasive influence on its industry and the broader markets.

While Benzinga continued to feature looks at the prospects for many investor favorite stocks last week, much of the attention of investors and analysts was on the latest launches from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), not just what they mean for the company, but also the industry, sector and broader markets. Here are some of the more bearish and bullish calls on Apple from this past week.

"10 Years Later, iPhone X Arrives" by Mark Fritz focused on the unveiling of the company's newest flagship smartphone, marking the 10th anniversary of the iconic, game-changing device. While trade magazines had leaked many of the features in the lead up to the presentation, the announcement still had plenty to please the die-hard followers. Most of the drama was over its price point.

In "Everything You Need To Know About Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple 4K TV," Elizabeth Balboa featured the product reveals aside from the iPhone 8 and iPhone X that also merited interest.
