Thanks for this last msg., Brewer.

Yes, this is true -- I can "flip" my shares and assuming price doesn't go down between when the plan buys and I sell, I will make 15% profit... of course minus that 15% as part of my taxable income, and then minus any capital gains. Still could be a good deal, esp. if stock goes up in 6 months, because I would get it at a 15% discount to the price at the beginning of the 6-month plan.

Yes, I hate to ratchet down 401K, but it may be the thing to do, for now.
