... If so, you could take a $50,000 loan at say 5% from your 401k, then invest the proceeds....I do not see where you would really gain anything. If you have $100K in both a 401K and a taxable stock account you would have $200K invested. If you do this $50K loan, then you would still have a total of $200K invested ($50K in 401K and $150K in taxable) Any gains in the taxable account would be taxed and the interest repaid into the 401K will(on average) be less than the $50K would have earned if it was left invested in some sort of balanced mutual fund.Not that it is a good idea, but you need to compare this to just buying on margin in your taxable account. If you were in the same situation and invested $50K on margin in the taxable account, then you would have $250K invested($100K in 401k, $150K in taxable). Greg
