The decisions of nearly 100,000 individual 401(k) participants were studied to obtain a better understanding of the determinants of employee discretionary investment in company stock. High returns on company stock for the year prior to enrolment encouraged participations to make higher initial investments in company stock. The opposite is true for trading decisions. High past returns induced participants to shift their portfolios away from company stock towards other equities.
