My wife and I age 44 have 500k + each in our General Electric 401k plan. Most of it is in GE Stock. We have seen sizeable growth the last few years and GE being the rock (actually boulder)it is expect a good rate of return. We plan to use the 72t exclusion due to a plant closing. My question is if the 401k continues to have good growth would it be to our advantage to start rolling over the funds into a roth to gain the no-tax growth? I'm not sure if we can roll over stock or just money from the fund but would there be a right or wrong way to do the roll over? I understand the basics but am looking for the best route and am open to all ideas.
Thank you
