Benzinga - by Michael Cohen, Benzinga Editor.

Benzinga examined the prospects for many investors’ favorite stocks over the last week — here’s a look at some of our top stories.

It was a down week on Wall Street, with the S&P 500 dropping 1.56%, the Dow falling 2.37%, and the Nasdaq decreasing by 0.45%. Oil prices rose on news that Israel is preparing for a possible direct attack by Iran this weekend.

The VIX, or Volatility Index, experienced its most significant surge in over a year on Friday, following President Joe Biden‘s warning that an Iranian attack on Israeli soil could happen “sooner rather than later.”

Meanwhile, U.S. consumer sentiment dipped in April, falling short of economist forecasts, and the likelihood of a Federal Reserve rate cut in June plummeted from 60% to 20%, with some Wall Street analysts now expecting only one rate cut in December.

Benzinga provides daily reports on 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.
