Barron's Picks And Pans: Apache, Broadcom, O'Reilly And More
  • This weekend's Barron's offers a look at an independent energy company stock that could be poised to turnaround.
  • Other featured articles discuss possible winners and losers in the new internet boom and some small-cap stocks that pay reliable dividends like big companies do.
  • The prospects for an auto parts supplier and an auto components maker are also examined.

"Apache's Depressed Stock Could Double" by Leslie P. Norton points out that one of the worst-performing stocks in the market this year is exploration and production company Apache Corporation (NYSE: APA). Yet, after new gas discoveries and a renewed focus on costs, some well-regarded stockpickers are quietly scooping up shares on the expectation that they could double.

In "New Internet Winners: Broadcom, Finisar," Tiernan Ray makes the case that the big telecom companies may be left out of the cloud boom, as the largest tech giants on the planets build their own networks. See why Barron's believes Broadcom Ltd (NASDAQ: AVGO) and Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR) could be among the winners of the new internet boom.

Lawrence C. Strauss's "Five Small-Cap Stocks for Dividend Investors" suggests that when it comes to dividends, much attention rightly is paid to large companies. However, plenty of small-cap stocks pay healthy and reliable dividends, too. This article offers a look at five of them, including First Hawaiian Inc (NASDAQ: FHB) and Graphic Packaging Holding Company (NYSE: GPK).

Auto-parts supplier O'Reilly Automotive Inc (NASDAQ: ORLY) will overcome last week's disappointing sales figures, according to "O'Reilly Automotive Will Get Back on Track" by Jack Hough, and the stock will continue its drive higher. Barron's recommended buying shares last spring because of O'Reilly's experienced management and solid commercial business with repair shops.

In Jack Hough's "BorgWarner, Up 30%, Can Accelerate," find out why car-component maker BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE: BWA) is bucking automotive headwinds and benefiting from demand for its hybrid and electric vehicle products. Shares of BorgWarner may have returned 30 percent since last summer, but see why Barron's thinks they still have some room to run.
