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.

As usual, Benzinga continues to examine the prospects for many of the stocks most popular with investors. Here are just a few of this past week's most bullish and bearish posts that are worth another look.

Tyree Gorges's "4 Reasons To Buy Netflix Stock In 2020" takes a look at some catalysts that could boost shares of Netflix, Inc. (NYSE: NFLX) in 2020, despite increased competition from powerful streaming rivals.
