I have a comment for you . In case no one told you The Bill + Melinda Gates Foundation sold 8.2 million shares of AN Nov 1st thru Feb 14th at an average of $ 34 a share . The very next day Cascade Investments ( a private holding company owned by Bill Gates ) commenced buying back shares for a total of 2.4 million shares thru June 6th, at an average of $ 34 . Do you see a tax benefit here and not a buying opportunity ? Its a game, a very expensive one played by very rich participants. Its called the I, Mr Gates buy your shares and you buy mine money game .
