Benzinga has examined the prospects for many investors’ favorite stocks over the past week, while offering a 24/7 news feed, live chat and charting software on Benzinga Pro. 

Even though the markets closed higher on Friday, all three major indexes lost ground this week. The S&P 500 was down by 2.2%, while the Dow Industrials dropped by 1.3% and the Nasdaq lost 4.1% during the week. This marks the fourth week of declines in the past five weeks.

Investors remained cautious heading into the July 4th holiday weekend, as inflation and fuel costs remain at record levels. Meanwhile, corporations are trying to determine how to navigate the economic slowdown, with concerns about ongoing supply chain challenges and the looming potential of a recession.

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.
