GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH), the cannabis prescription play, also saw gains of +7.40% this week as the healthcare sector rebounded.

Biggest Loser: Nvidia (NVDA)

Following Intel’s (INTC) earnings report seeing slowing growth in China, Nvidia (NVDA) stock retreated -4.41% to close the week, but was as low as -7.00% as Nvidia’s May 16 earnings date grows nearer.
