Benzinga's Bulls And Bears Of The Week: Apple, Boeing, Netflix, GE And More




The coronavirus outbreak, the impeachment trial and other news weighed on investor sentiment last week. The major U.S. indexes end the week with marginal declines, led by the 1% or so retreat in the Dow Jones industrials. It was a good week for renowned CEOS Elon Musk and Jamie Dimon, but not so much for Jeff Bezos.
