Greetings, Bulldog32, and welcome. You asked:

<<My dad was recently downsized and now has to do something with his ESOP stock. I am leaning toward having him roll it over into an IRA, but am asking for any suggestions. Thanks. >>

Your dad may be far better off keeping the stock and paying income taxes on its basis now rather than putting it in an IRA. For details, see my article "Taking Stock" at http://www.fool.com/retirement/manageretirement/manageretirement4.htm. Often, it's better to keep it rather than putting it in an IRA.

Regards..Pixy
