Benzinga's Bulls & Bears Of The Week: Boeing, GameStop, GE, Tesla And More

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

Bullish calls included leaders in aerospace and cannabis.

Bearish calls included a beverage giant and a struggling retailer.

The big U.S. indexes ended the past week marginally lower than where they started, perhaps taking a breather after prior strong gains or simply looking for catalysts. It was a week that brought news of high trade deficits as talks with China stretch out, as well as disappointments from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the European Central Bank. And there may be big changes coming to the FDA too.
