Greetings TheRanchHand,
I am just starting and wonder what type of stocks should go into my ROTH IRA?

This is interesting because the question "What Should I Put In My Roth IRA?" is in a way a paradox as far as personal investing is concerned. When you know what's best to put in your Roth IRA you will have the answer to the question. In other words you need to learn for yourself what's best and not take someone else's word for it.

To start down that road here are some links to check out:
Fools school

Vanguard University
http://www.vanguard.com/educ/inveduc.html
Index funds board FAQ
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=13403173

Until you can answer that question for yourself you might consider a money market fund like Vanguard Prime. You'll get a reasonable return while you learn.
