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.

Baby Boomer Plays: This Barron's article says that baby boomers are a growing force at 77 million, and companies that ignore this group will be doing so at their own peril. Among the stocks mentioned are Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report), Target (TGT - Get Report) and Walt Disney (DIS - 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 Peabody Energy (BTU), AVI BioPharma (AVII) and Assured Guaranty (AGO - Get Report).

'Speaking of Dividends': This Barron's column highlights the latest dividend increases, initiations and cutbacks. This week there's information on Yum! Brands (YUM - Get Report) and Calavo Growers (CVGW - Get Report).

Latest Activist Purchases: Which companies are the top hedge funds chasing? This week's list includes names like Calpine (CPN), Facet Biotech (FACT) and WSFS Financial (WSFS).

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' stocks. There has been interesting activity in Sandridge Energy (SD), Chelsea Therapeutics International (CHTP), Seachange International (SEAC) and Metro Bancorp (METR).

Research Reports: The latest analyst research reports highlighted by Barron's, including reports this week on Jefferies Group (JEF), Iron Mountain (IRM) and Abbott Labs (ABT - Get Report).
