You can transfer shares of stock in a Roth conversion. However, the current value of the shares will be treated as taxable income. See IRS Publication 590.

"You must include in your gross income distributions from a traditional IRA that you would have had to include in income if you had not converted them into a Roth IRA. These amounts are normally included in income on your return for the year that you converted them from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA."
