Benzinga has examined prospects for many investor favorite stocks over the past week.

Bullish calls included a leading electric vehicle maker and a top fastfood stock.

Bearish calls included a cannabis stock and a specialty retailer.

The big U.S. indexes managed to reclaim some of the ground lost in May, ending the past week 5 percent or more higher. It was a week that saw Treasury yields drop to new lows, fresh comments from the Federal Reserve and a worse-than-expected unemployment report. Some of the FAANG stocks also have come under increased scrutiny.

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