PMcmullenCT --- Good response. Taking an "in kind" distribution of stock from the 401k at retirement does have the significant tax advantages that you discussed. The other point to make is that until
2010 with the new tax law, the cost basis of the stock for heirs is bumped up to the value of the owner at passing.
