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

The Federal Reserve shook the markets this week, raising its target fed funds rate by 0.75% on Wednesday to a new range of between 3% and 3.25%, its third 0.75% rate hike in four months.

The reaction was swift, as all three major indices dropped lower for the remainder of the week. The S&P 500 finished the week down 4.07%, the Dow Industrial Average dropped by 3.69%, and the Nasdaq Composite had the biggest weekly loss at 4.15%.

Investors remain cautious and are anticipating further Fed rate hikes as the central bank attempts to bring inflation under control, a point reiterated by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell this week.

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.
