Yes, they can be single stocks which you wish to hold for the long term.

These are usually in a regular brokerage account.

You also have the advantage of being to access this money to pay for purchases through time.

Example: I just sold a small portion of an appreciated stock to pay off my boat 18 month early. I turned a $1500 investment into $8700 (I bought the shares at the same time I bought the boat).

The capitol gains tax hit was WAY smaller than continuing to pay interest on the loan.

We have $ in a 401K (with Vanguard), and our IRA's, Roth IRA's, and brokerage with Scottrade.
