This Week's 'Barron's' Roundup

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

Top Picks From Six Stars: Barron's highlights stock picks from six established mutual fund managers who've proven themselves over time. Among the names mentioned are Wells Fargo (WFC - Get Report), Spirit AeroSystems (SPR - Get Report), Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Petrobras (PZE - Get Report).

Bullish and Bearish: Each week, Barron's publishes bullish and bearish stories on a variety of stocks. We present summaries of those stories in this portfolio. This week, there are bullish stories on Charles Schwab (SCHW - Get Report), Apple and RSC Holdings (RRR).

'Speaking of Dividends': This Barron's column highlights the latest dividend increases, initiations and cutbacks. This week there's information on Weyerhaeuser (WY) and Paccar (PCAR).

Top Insider Purchases of the Week: Insider purchases are a lot more predictive than insider selling. Barron's lists companies where managers are buying stock, and we build a portfolio with those companies' shares. There has been interesting activity in Oragenics (ORNI), Voxware (VOXW), H&R Block (HRB) and Kronos Worldwide (KRO).

Latest Activist Purchases: Which companies are the top hedge funds chasing? This week's list includes names like Journal Communications (JRN), Conseco (CNO) and International Royalty (ROY).

Research Reports: The latest analyst research reports highlighted by Barron's, including reports this week on Intel (INTC), McDonald's (MCD) and Art Technology Group (ARTG).
