Bulls And Bears Of The Week: Apple, Chesapeake, GE And More

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

Bullish calls included picks from Gene Munster and a conglomerate that's turning around.

Bearish calls included a top pot stock and a cult food stock.

Investors had a rough week as a market correction arrived, primarily on the back of the widening coronavirus outbreak and a U.S. response seen by many as tepid, or even incompetent.

The Dow Jones industrials ended the week down almost 10%, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq fared only marginally better. It was also a week that saw a  high-profile CEO unexpectedly step down and another discussing his succession.

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