TMF Pixy will know for sure, but I think that an IRA has to be funded with cash, except for a transfer from another IRA.

If you want to transfer Foolish Four stocks into an IRA, the time you can do it is on the anniversary, when you're going to be selling some of them anyway, depending on the rankings then current. That is, you would sell the shares and then fund the IRA with cash (up to the contribution limit).

Once the funds are in your IRA account, you can purchase any stocks (or other investment vehicles that the broker offers) and trade just as in a regular account.
