Gene,
If you want the gift to go to your daughter, then why not let it stay in JNJ versus selling the stock which creates a taxable event now, and another when you sell the new investment for tuition?

Seems to me the lowest tax option at this time would be to keep the JNJ and then sell it later for tuition. JNJ is a solid company that should continue to grow.
