Greetings, Rbell58, and welcome. You asked:
<<I am new to Fooldom.
I have an IRA loaded with mutual funds. For some reason I was under the impression I couldn't hold stocks in an IRA.
Am I wrong? I hope so.>>
Yes, you are wrong. Any broker will allow you to have a what's called a self-directed IRA within which you may buy and sell individual securities like stocks and bonds. To learn more about IRAs, see our IRA area at http://www.fool.com/Money/AllAboutIRAs/AllAboutIRAs.htm.
