For the record, I'm saying it can't be done under existing law. If the shares were in an ordinary taxable account, then it is impossible to move them to an IRA. They would have to be sold first. Even then, only up to $2K of those proceeds could be moved to the IRA and used for a repurchase.

Individual securities may be transferred to an IRA only when they are already in another IRA or are in an employer's qualified retirement plan.
