Benzinga's Final Bulls And Bears Of The Year: Alibaba, Apple, Intel, Tesla And More

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

The week's bullish calls included the iPhone maker and electric vehicle stocks.

A semiconductor maker and a Chinese internet giant were among the bearish calls.

The final trading week of a tumultuous year offered little in the way of a Santa Claus rally, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones industrial average up about 1% and the Nasdaq essentially flat for the week. For the full year though, the Dow was up about 6%, the S&P 500 was more than 14% higher, and the Nasdaq saw a gain of more than 41%. Not bad for a year that saw a market collapse in March.

The year ended with progress on a third COVID-19 vaccine, continued political bickering in Washington and signs of life in the movie industry. Also, the ecommerce colossus had success with a new endeavor, the electric vehicle leader is poised to expand and a top chipmaker's days may be numbered.

The year's end is also a time to look forward, with market themes to watch and predictions about the FAANG stocks, cryptocurrency and so much more.

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