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 Bond Funds: Barron's highlights six managers who are finding value in the treacherous bond market. They share three characteristics: They're conservative, savvy and experienced. The funds include the Fidelity Government Income Fund (FGOVX), Legg Mason Partners Managed Municipals Fund (SHMMX) and Templeton Global Bond Fund (TPINX).


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 Research In Motion ( RIMM), Apple ( AAPL) and Corning ( GLW).


Small-Cap Value: Barron's talks with John E. Deysher, portfolio manager of the $53 million Pinnacle Value Fund (PVFIX). Deysher thinks small-cap stocks are set to bounce. Among the names he likes are Preferred Bank ( PFBC) and MVC Capital ( MVC).


Research Reports: The latest analyst research highlighted by Barron's, including reports this week on Google ( GOOG), InterDigital ( IDCC) and Agrium ( AGU).


'Speaking of Dividends': This Barron's column highlights the latest dividend increases, initiations and cutbacks. This week there's information on Wal-Mart ( WMT), Norfolk Southern ( NSC) and Bank of America ( BAC).


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 Icahn Enterprises ( IEP), General Mills ( GIS), Industrial Services of America ( IDSA) and T 3 Energy Services ( TTES).
