Hey all, I've been hanging around this board off and on for a while now trying to soak up as much info as possible. Here's a question that I have researched but can't find a clear cut answer.

In reference to buying stocks in your Roth IRA; I understand that if you own stocks that pay dividends, the distributions are not considered as contributions and the max contributions are $4K for 2007. But what happens if you sell stock that went up (say you made 300 and already contributed the max), is the sell of stock that used for another purchase considered an additional contribution.

Thanks in advance for your help!
