Hey all!
I just opened a Roth account. I'm actually just getting into the whole investing game and have been watching the market/boards for a while. i think i'm ready, and i have a list of stocks i want to begin with. in addition to the roth, i just opened an individual account.
now, i can't decide which stocks to throw in which account--i've heard different things, like biotech is good for retirement investing, and such. i know the roth should consist of long-term investments, but, foolishly, shouldn't all of my investments be long-term? so, then, what is the distinction? Again, i have a list of stocks that i like and think are good for long-term. so, it shouldn't really matter which stock I throw in which port, right?

Thanks!
JAK
