<<I have about $100,000 in General Electric stock in my 401(k), constituting 1/3 of my 401(k)portfolio...want to know whether I should sell all of the stock while it is in the 401(k) when I am about to retire and place it safer vehicle within the 40l(k) and what the best overall tax strategy would be. >>

Of all the stocks I own, GE is the one I wouldn't worry about selling for diversification. There is such a thing a "diworsification." If I could only own one stock, GE is the one I'd want for the good life.
