There is no question that a good stock picker can do better than the mechanical investing techniques usually recommended in Fooldom. However, most stock pickers also pick a few losers and face difficult decisions knowing when to sell. That is why mechanical investing works well for many who are less sophisticated or who do not have lots of time to monitor the performance of companies they are investing in.

Different strokes for different folks. If you feel you can successfully pick stocks that give good returns, Roth IRA can be a great place to do it.
