Stockpickr: Barron's Roundup

Editor's Note: Welcome to Stockpickr's "Barron's Roundup." Each weekend, James Altucher presents Stockpickr portfolios related to articles in the latest issue of Barron's.

Top Small-Cap Dividend Payers: "Small-caps have been performing well. What's more, they're increasingly rewarding their investors with dividends," Barron's writes. These are the top S&P-ranked small-cap companies that are paying dividends. They include Landstar System (LSTR - Get Report), General Maritime (GMR) and others.

Latest Activist Situations: These are stocks where large shareholders (usually hedge funds) are trying to shake up management in order to unlock value. Today's list includes InfoSpace (INSP) and Openwave Systems (OPWV).

Significant Insider Buying: Which companies have insiders backing up the truck on their own shares. We shed a little more color than Barron's and tell you which funds own each stock. The stocks this week include Medtronic (MDT - Get Report) and Friendly Ice Cream (FRN).

Bullish and Bearish: Summaries of the articles in Barron's about individual stocks. The latest issue has bullish stories on Clear Channel (CCU - Get Report) and Saks (SKS), and a bearish one on STMicroelectronics (STM).

Shorts and Longs of the Mortgage Fallout: Some of the companies that can pick up the pieces include Fannie Mae (FNM) and Freddie Mac (FRE). The shorts include, of course, New Century (NEW) and Accredited Home Lenders (LEND).

Profile: AIM Energy Fund: 17% annual returns for the past decade , this fund's managers are big believers that energy prices will keep going higher. Here are their top picks for 2007, from large-caps like Exxon Mobil (XOM) to small-caps like Bill Barrett (BBG).

Profile of the Neuberger Berman Partners Fund: Manager S. Basu Mullick thinks coal stocks like Peabody (BTU) have been oversold and is also bullish on Joy Global (JOYG).

Research Reports: Snapshots of this week's Barron's research reports, including analysis of Dollar Tree Store (DLTR) and Genitope (GTOP).
At the time of publication, Altucher and/or his fund had no positions in stocks mentioned, although positions may change at any time.
