Fidelity Contrafund and PIMCO are some pretty good choices. I am a VG fan but those funds look OK to me. One advantage of an IRA is that you can hold stocks of interest as well as funds. MY Wells Fargo IRA has allowed me to lose more than if I had just held total market index funds but it is in areas of interest like REITs, Berkshire Hathaway, foreign bonds and the like.
