Two Fitting Funds for Your IRA

Morningstar's Russ Kinnel offers up a recently reopened Morningstar favorite and a top TIPS fund for consideration.

Christine Benz: Hi, I'm Christine Benz from Morningstar. It's tax time and that means you have until April 15th to fund an IRA for the 2008 tax year. With that in mind, I thought it would make sense to sit down with some of Morningstar's most senior analysts to get their picks for funding an IRA.

Russ Kinnel: Good to be here.

Christine Benz: Now, one of your picks, Sequoia SEQUX is a fund I like a lot, too, and it's one of the many funds that just reopened last year. So, talk about why you think Sequoia is such a great fund pick.

But, it's still a small fund and just a great fund in the Warren Buffett mold. They have ties to Buffett.
