Benzinga's Bulls & Bears Of The Week: Apple, Disney, GE, Sprint And More
  • Benzinga has examined prospects for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • Bullish calls included tech and entertainment giants with strong prospects.
  • Some bearish calls followed disappointing earnings reports.

Last week was a busy one, beginning with shattered box office records and ending with a strong employment report. In between, the Federal Reserve held the line on interest rates; one of the season's most anticipated earnings reports dropped; the Oracle of Omaha made a surprising move and Washington inched closer to a deal on infrastructure spending.

It was a bit of a roller coaster for the markets, but they ended up not far from where they began the week, with the Nasdaq up marginally and the Dow Jones industrials a tad lower.>

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