My comments: Please tell me what stock to put into an IRA if not mlp's.? The line of reasoning proposed is insane. IRA's are for retirement and generally to supplement SS, Savings (presently less than 2%)and housing (prices for homes generally collapsed. The insane premis is your IRA will grow and you will have to pay taxes on the distribution. Well if it grows and it is an investment and it is taxed at retirement rate MOST BLUE CHIPS are at 10 year ago prices so where is the growth? The assumption is ludicrus. You have IRA money presently, then you have to put that money to grow in your IRA . You have brokerage money and you have to put it into something ., It is not the same money.The smartest focus is put your money into a roth IRA if you have any brains. Please the genius who writes this nonsense -Ask them what stocks to put into a IRA?
