Barron's Picks And Pans: Roundtable Picks, Energy Stocks, Bank Stocks And More
  • This weekend's Barron's cover story offers comments and picks from the Barron's Mid-Year Roundtable.
  • Other featured articles feature energy stocks and ETFs poised to run and regional banks that should prosper regardless of interest rate changes.
  • The prospects for a memory-chip equipment maker and the world's largest ATM provider are also examined.

"Barron's 2017 Mid-Year Roundtable: 26 Investment Picks" by Lauren R. Rublin suggests that while the market could get bumpy in the second half, Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR) and Walt Disney Co (NYSE: DIS) could prosper. See what members of the Barron's roundtable, such as Mario Gabelli and Jeff Gundlach, favor now in this cover story. And check out the Barron's Roundtable report card.

In "Energy Shares Could Soon Heat Up," Andrew Bary points out that energy is the worst performing sector in the S&P 500 this year. See why Barron's believes Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) and the others are set to pump out more free cash flow and higher share prices could follow. Could the four stocks and two exchange traded funds featured rise as much as 15 percent?

Jack Hough's "Three Banks Worth a Bet: Comerica, SVB, and Zions" makes a case that top regional banks Comerica Incorporated (NYSE: CMA), SVB Financial Group (NASDAQ: SIVB) and Zions Bancorp (NASDAQ: ZION) should prosper, regardless of whether the Federal Reserve continues to push up rates.

In Vito J. Racanelli's "Cash's Survival Is Diebold's Opportunity," see why even though the world's largest ATM provider, Diebold Nixdorf Inc (NYSE: DBD), has seen its shares fall over concerns about cash's long-term sustainability, integration of a merger and a revival could boost shares by up to 40 percent in the next two years. Could the rise of self-checkout machines also offer an opportunity?
