So long as a dividend paying stock does not lower its cash dividend when paying a stock dividend, you are getting a dividend increase (i.e., more income per year). A good example is Tootsie Roll, although I don't own any of this equity.

Yes, if you can concetrate these in an IRA or 401k, it is best to do so to reduce taxes. But many of us retirees live off of dividends to some extent so you have to decide.
