Actually, there are thousands of Wal_Mart employees who received stock from the company stock plan and became millionaires if they held onto it. That's true of many other companies as well, such as Home Depot. One of the founders of Home Depot talked about employees who bought million dollar couches for their homes. He was talking about employees who received company stock but sold it immediately to buy consumer stuff, stock that appreciated enormously in subsequent years.This was the company line where I worked--don't sell your stock too soon! Well, we all wished we'd sold sooner. Except the executives, who sold most of theirs as soon as they got it every year.
