Everyone wants to find ways to save more for retirement, and minimizing your tax bill is the best way to make sure you hang on to as much of your hard-earned retirement nest egg as possible. One of the best ways to accomplish that goal is to open a Roth IRA.

In the following video, longtime Fool contributor and retirement expert Dan Caplinger discusses the benefits of using a Roth IRA. As Dan notes, not only do Roth IRAs allow you to enjoy tax-free growth throughout your lifetime, you can even use the Roth as an estate-planning tool to pass on tax-free treatment to your heirs as well. The key to making the most of a Roth IRA, though, is putting the most appropriate investments into it, and Dan goes through the thought process behind how to choose which investments to make with limited Roth IRA assets.

One promising stock that might fit well in a Roth IRA is Monster Beverage. But the stakes are high for the energy-drink maker these days. The stock had been nothing short of a rocket, but recent developments have sent shares spiraling downward. Health scares sparked a number of investigations at the state and federal level into the energy drink's possible role in several fatalities. With the company's value slashed in half, investors are wondering whether Monster Beverage is a value or a bust in the fast-growing energy drink category.
