Last Week’s Benzinga Bulls & Bears: Disney, Uber, Velo3D, Bed Bath & Beyond, Apple, Rivian & More


Benzinga has spent the past week examining the outlook for many of investors’ favorite stocks.

Last week’s bullish calls included a 3D printing technology company and a popular ride-sharing company. A tech giant and a merchandise store chain were among the bearish calls seen.

It was another down week for the markets as all three major indices ended in the red after Friday’s sell-off. The Dow index fell about 2% for the week, its fifth consecutive weekly loss. The S&P 500 was down 2.9%, while Nasdaq Composite lost 3.5% for the week, marking the fourth weekly loss in the past five weeks for both indexes.

Next week could bring more volatility as the Federal Reserve meets next Tuesday and Wednesday to vote on an expected rate hike. Fed futures indicate a 96% chance of a 0.25 percentage point rate hike.

Meanwhile, oil prices rose this week and Brent Crude futures were up 3.1% to $112.67. Earlier in the week, they traded above $127.

Benzinga continues to examine the outlook for many of the stocks most popular with investors. Here are some of the most bullish and bearish posts from the past week that are worth revisiting.
