instead of IRA i bought BRK.B
i find it a very stable stock with limit or no risk involved and has a record of beating the market on a downfall

no risk? How about the health of an 83 year old cancer survivor and to a lesser extent a 90 year old?

do you really think that if he dies theres no Berkshire Hathaway anymore? A company that size doesnt just run like a grocery.

Of course it will still be there, but it will be worth much less.

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

$AAPL is the perfect example that when a true master mind dies, it leaves behind a culture and a way of thinking that continues to move the company in the right direction

I would venture to say that AAPL is still very much in the air as to how they do long term post Jobs.

Agreed.

Yet $AAPL closed today roughly 80% higher since Jobs died, and it was up already almost a 100% back in September 2012, all while "aapl is still very much in the air as to how they do long term post Jobs" ...

I'm not sure if this is the right place for it but here goes:

I have $5500 in a Roth IRA with Chuck Schwab.
I want to put it in to something that is safe yet will earn. I don't want to pay any fees or service charges or anything. Just put it in and forget about it for 30 years (other than adding to the overall account every December).

Does anyone have any advice? (Assume I have zero/limited experience with market terms and rules).

Exactly the kind of advice Buffett would give. Were you being ironic on purpose?
