i am in the final process of selecting a fund for my mothers Roth IRA. My dilemna is what route to take. She is 51 yrs old, conservative and just started a Roth a couple of years ago. I have researched several fund trying to figure out what is the best way to go. I am down to the following: Dodge & Cox Stock Fund (DODGX), Longleaf Partners Fund (LLPFX), Oakmark Fund (OAKBX), Third Avenue Fund (TAVFX), First Eagle Fund of America Y (FEAFX), Mairs & Power Growth (MPGFX) and Clipper (CFIMX). The other route I am looking at is Coroporate Bonds (ex. Tyco 7% over next 18 mos.). She has an acct through a full service brokerage (can't get her to switch over to discount...don't get me started...like i said conservative). Any immediate feedback would be appreciated as it is getting down to crunch time.
