I would highly appreciate you knowledge and expertise. The company I work for has a matched shares program (one of big 3 miners). Basically every year we can buy up to 6k value of shares and in three year we receive matched shares. This is the second year I have been participating in this program. However, I'm lately questioning the viability of my investment. First of all those matched shares are taxed against my taxable income . Second, when I decide to sell them I pay tax again (CGT, if I do make any profit). And thirdly, last year I bought around 6k worth of shares that are now worth only 50% of the original value.
What are your thought, continue or stop these investments?
