<<I have no idea what my cost basis is for my shares of company stock, so I am unable for now to run the numbers for my own case. I was trying to figure out if I was ahead to take the stock at my upcoming retirement , pay ordinary income tax on the proceeds now, and pay capital gains when I sell it, or whether I should roll it into an IRA along with the rest of my 401k.>>

Contact your company's retirement department and they should be able to give you a cost basis figure even before you actually retire. At least mine did. And that sure makes it easier to make your decision
