A couple of questions from a newbie here.
I plan on contributing to a Roth IRA for the first time, can I add
to an inherited Roth IRA or do I have to start a new account?

Next question concerns assent allocation. I have an IRA and a Roth
IRA (both inherited) that are currently in mutual funds. My wife
and I will be opening our own Roths this year and also an after tax
account, so that is five accounts. I want to get out of the mutual funds
and invest in 10 or so Rule Maker companies. Does it matter how I
divide the stocks among the different accounts? Should each account
have some diversification among the 10 stocks? My investing horizon
is very long term.

Thanks
