Salomon,Smith Barney permits stock or bonds to be shifted to a cash account. It is of course, a normal distribution after age 59 1/2. One reason to do this iswhen the security price is depressed and you expect appreciation before long. You create a capital gain inthe cash account that can used to offset capital losses! If you had left it in the IRA and taken it out later, you would have had to pay tax at ordinary income rates on the appreciation!
