I honestly think a red tie is far too flashy to be of much use. That's just a personal opinion though, I know they're popular. I'm particularly fond of darker blue ties (can't be more business conservative than that) and brown ties.
This thread has some great examples of some good conservative attire:

Also NO SHINY TIES.
Depends on what kind of red. Burgundy is always a classy option.
Good point. I was thinking more along the lines of American flag red.
I think anything that's a neutral color (browns, greys, etc) or anything that's close to a neutral color (burgundy) is great, it allows you to use them in your rotation more often. When you're building your wardrobe, at the beginning you should absolutely focus on the most versatile colors, and then build from there. To be honest, when I was building my wardrobe, I stuck to white shirts ONLY. You really can't go wrong with white.
