You shouldn't look at these RIRA's by themselves. Instead look at all of your investments especially those that you intend to provide for your retirement and develope an overall asset allocation. Then determine which assets will go into which accounts.
Personally I am not in favor of individual stocks in tax advantaged accounts. I would suggest broad based mutual funds and especially index funds for these accounts. If your asset allocation called for equities in the account I would suggest something like an index fund tracking the Wilshire 5000 or perhaps the S&P500. If the allocation was for bonds then something like an intermediate term bond index fund might be considered.
