Accept the free stock, but "short" an equal amount of the stock in a margin brokerage account. If the amount you're shorted is equal to the amount in your 401K, then you have a "wash" where the gains/losses on your "short" position are offset by the gains/losses inside your 401(k). So you end up with extra cash in your brokerage account. When you retire, you sell the company stock and use the cash to cover your short position.I wouldn't....shorting the stock of your employer is usually frowned upon...along with price manipulation. Aside from possibly getting you fired, there could be legal consequences.The Dreamer.
