I'm single, self-employed with under $30,000 taxable earnings. It appears a better retirement investment strategy for me is to use high growth stocks with potential capital gains in ROTH IRA and use the high yield stocks in taxable accounts. I think this is better for my situation with taxable income under $34,000 that may be tax free in 2011 tax rate extension.

This way I can make future SEP IRA contributions from dividends on taxable investments that will be tax-free as a result of both 2011 tax extension and SEP IRA deductions.

Is the correct and am I on the right track?
