The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Jason Moser and advisor Charly Travers discuss topics around the investing world.
Jason and Charly bring you 10 stocks that you can buy and hold for the long term in your IRA to maximize its tax advantages. Jason likes banks as a long-term play, but given what we've just gone through with the Great Recession and its after-effects, not just any bank will do. US Bancorp is a solid operator, with a history of strong management to go with excellent growth prospects -- not to mention the backing of our favorite octogenarian investor -- and Jason sees it as an excellent addition to any IRA today.
