Apple, Costco, FedEx And More

  • Benzinga has examined the prospects for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • This past week’s bullish calls included pharmaceutical and package delivery leaders.
  • Tech giants and top airlines were among last week’s bearish calls.

The stock market started last week with a bit of a facelift, and it turned out to be another volatile week, with Dow Jones industrials and the S&P 500 ending around 2% lower and the Nasdaq down more than 3%.
