Since you can turn them either way, it is good practice to mount them facing the same direction, like the gold band to the right or down, depending on horiz/vert. mounting. This makes it easier to read the color codes on all the resistors, so you don't have to twist and turn the PCB to read the values.

yeah line up the gold/silver bands on the resistors, and on the caps have the cap codes all facing the same direction
