Not likely, copy or move stacks to a different folder is already losing the stacks (useful as they can be there is much room for improvement regarding stacks…)
Best way to keep them sorted in an easy way is to apply a keyword to all the files in a stack, using different keywords you can easily restack the lot on the new computer using the keyword filter.
When using Raw be sure to also copy the XMP side car files with it
Yes you can, the information is kept in the hidden file .BridgeSort (same file as manual sort information) in the selected folder, so all you need to do is copy this file along with your other files. You might have to re-start Bridge for it to read the file though.

Thanks Philip, did not know this, normal copy of one stack to an other folder is just losing the current stack. I'm not sure copy of the sort file will also work in copying just 1 stack to another folder scenario because this will replace the sort file in the other folder.
Any knowledge or comment on the 1 stack to other folder scenario?
Indeed, but sadly enough it is causing an other problem, by replacing the BridgeSort file the stacks already present in the folder you are copying to are getting lost…
So for the case of the OP it has been a wonderful solution, moving stacks to other folders is still a problem.
Ah yes, I think it might be doable with a script, but that is beyond me.
Also beyond me and to be frankly, it seems also beyond Adobe because the problem has been addressed long time ago and still not fixed…
Hi Omke, I sent an email to Paul asking if it was possible to move/copy a stack via a script and just got a reply that he has added these scripts for download on his site in the Bridge section, and thought you might be able to make use of them.
Nice to hear from Paul again!, did you ask if he is planning to come back despite his thoughts about Adobe CC?, he was also a regular in this forum, and always nice and very helpful
I already downloaded the script and give it a try. Thanks for pointing to Paul his script!
