    A discount is a discount
    Max out on your ESPP
    Sell it on the day you get it
    Enjoy atleast 5% profit

  • I’m always surprised why people don’t buy into ESPP. It’s literally a guaranteed discount. It’s the same reason why you shouldn’t miss out on 401k matches.

    BLK's espp is not like others. There's a specific trading window and so u risk exposure to market movements. 5% is not worth the risk.

    Also, the espp tool is horrible.

    I don’t think you can sell it tomorrow. You gotta keep it for 3-6 months, not sure

    There’s a 5% value in buying BlackRock stock at a 5% discount. Think of it as getting 5%.

    Not worth it due to holding period.

    Probably depends on the holding period and how they determine the price you get. Some places use the lower of the start or end date of the period. Others just use the end date.

    If there's no holding period it's a no-brainer. If you have to hold it for 6 months it might not be big enough to entice me. Stocks can fluctuate that much in a single day.
