Options to consider:
1️⃣ Sell. Accept your tax fate. You won the game, and the price of admission will be your tax bill.

3️⃣ Exchange Fund. Notice these are not Exchange Traded Funds (“ETF’s”). With an Exchange Fund you are traded a single security for a diversified equity portfolio. The benefit of this is that you instantly become diversified and eliminate single stock risk. The downside is that you generally must be considered an - accredited investor, typically $5 million in cash to contribute- and you cannot access your funds without penalty for up to seven years.

The Exchange Fund's risk management process includes an effort to monitor and manage risk, but does not imply low risk. Diversification does not protect an investor from market risk and does not ensure a profit.
