You can transfer shares of stock in a Roth conversion.

Only if the current Sharebuilder account is an IRA account. If the Sharebuilder account is a taxable account (which I assumed was the case, since the OP did not say "I have a Sharebuilder IRA"), it is not eligible for conversion to a Roth IRA.

Yeah, I know. I should have said the only way to transfer shares of stock to a Roth IRA is through a Roth conversion from a traditional IRA. I did quote text from IRS Publication 590 that would apply if that was the case.
