No. of Recommendations: 1
I've begun assembling a list of II stocks for inclusion in an IRA. Some recommendations involve foreign companies such as VE that withhold foreign taxes on the dividends.

As there is no way to recapture this withholding in an IRA through the use of a tax credit, my question is this: which II stocks would specifically not be recommended for a retirement account?

I have already purchased some shares in VE, and perhaps the potential upside in the share price and the sizable dividend outweigh the 15% haircut on the payout.

But there are some other foreign companies -- as well as some MLPs, I think -- among the recs. Which should I stay away from for my IRA?

Thanks, Paps
