As part of my divorce settlement, I was awarded 80% my ex's 401(k) in a QDRO. I have so far kept this money in the same funds as when we were married. It's invested in two mutual funds, both aggressive growth, and both doing quite well (about 100% gain in three years), but I'm considering rolling over some or all of this money if it's possible to invest tax-deferred money in individual stocks rather than in funds.

Can this be done, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance, to any who take time to respond.
