RAI pays 5.48% according to a quick look at Etrade.

What's the underlying concern and goal? Diversification? Income security?

Have you been planning to sell your RAI anyway?

Since you're looking at "High Yield, Tax Free Funds" it sounds like you plan to continue taking retirement income from this money.

Depending on your goals there's more options to consider than just sell or hold. Just a couple other options that come to mind off the cuff:

You could sell RAI, pay cap gains, rebuy RAI, collect 15% less dividend income for now and have a higher basis if you mean to sell RAI in the future.

You could do nothing, keep the income stream you have,pass those shares along to your heirs (if you care to) at a stepped up basis.
