what's a good IRA strategy?I

An IRA should be the perfect place to hold investments that throw off capital gains or dividends, such as REITS or bonds or dividend paying stocks. Having these types of investments in a taxable portfolio would be more costly, as you would have to pay tax on the dividends in the year they're earned.
