Yes, you may! IRA distributions can be made with stock. The value of any distribution made with stock from an IRA account to a non-IRA account is based on the previous day's closing price the distribution was processed by our clearing firm. For example, if a stock distribution was made on Dec. 11, 2018, then the value of the position is determined by the closing price of Dec. 10, 2018.
