It's a tough choice. If you anticipate that you will have large gains,its better to keep the stocks with bigger growth potential in the Roth account so that you avoid tax on the gain, leaving the more conservative stocks in the taxable account. On the other hand, if you want to be able to use losses to offset gains, you would keep the high flyers in the taxable account on the theory that losses are more likely on the high flyers. A little of both may be a sensible solution.

Hope this helps.
