"Outlook 2017: This Bull Market Has Legs" by Vito J. Racanelli indicates 10 investment strategists who Barron's consults semi-annually are bullish for the coming year.

In "Tech Infrastructure Will Rule," Tiernan Ray makes the case for a sharper-than-usual divide in the year ahead between personal technology and the building of what is known as infrastructure for companies to use for data processing.

David Englander's "For Large Stock Gains, Think Small" offers five out-of-favor and undervalued small- and mid-sized stock picks in widely diversified industries for 2017. Those selections include a real estate investment trust (REIT), a movie-theater chain, a TV station operator, a textbook publisher and a business development company.
