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

The S&P 500 finished the week on a high note, closing near the 4,300 benchmark on Friday for the first time since August 2022. This uptick reflects investor anticipation of next week's inflation data and the impending announcement of the Federal Reserve's latest decision on rates.

The S&P 500 rose by 0.39% this week, making it the fourth consecutive week of gains — a streak last seen in August. The Nasdaq was up around 0.14%, marking its seventh week of consecutive gains, a streak not seen since November 2019. The Dow Jones rose 0.34%. Despite a minor drop on Friday, the Russell 2000 reported a weekly increase of 1.9%.
