  • #Benzinga has looked at the outlook for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.
  • The week’s bullish calls included shares in the iPhone maker and electric vehicles.
  • A semiconductor maker and a #Chinese internet giant were among the bearish calls.

The final week of trading in a tumultuous year hardly offered a #Santa rally, with an industry average for the S&P 500 and #Dow #Jones up around 1% and the #Nasdaq mostly flat for the week. #For the full year however, the #Dow #Jones rose about 6%, the S&P 500 was over 14% higher, and the #Nasdaq saw a gain of over 41%. #Not bad for a year that saw a market crash in #March.

The year ended with progress on a third COVID-19 vaccine, continued political wrangling in #Washington, and signs of life in the movie industry. #Additionally, the e-commerce colossus has had success with a new venture, the leader in electric vehicles is poised to thrive, and the days of a leading chipmaker can be numbered.

The end of the year is also a time to look ahead, with market themes to watch and forecasts for FAANG stocks, cryptocurrency and more.

#Throughout this time, #Benzinga has continued to examine the prospects for many of the stocks most popular with investors. #Here are some of the more bullish and bearish posts from the past week that deserve another look.
