Looks like both of those links show investment choices being only funds.

Both Fidelity and Vanguard have brokerage arms that offer accounts that can be used to buy individual stocks.

From the Fidelity link:
Investment options A wide range of mutual funds, stocks, bonds, ETFs, and FDIC-insured CDs

I would suggest calling Vanguard to see if you can have a brokerage account attached to a 401(k). I know you can have a brokerage account attached to both Roth and Traditional IRAs and I have seen other people mention buying individual stocks in their Vanguard based 401(k).
