hi thanks for reading, I don't think about the rate on capital losses because I live in california, and the state will smack me with 10% anyway, so 20%+10% vs 30%+10% is still a lot... I don't like giving my money away.
I think of cap losses as a precious resource when I need to diversify. My biggest holding is SEB, and I am expecting it to pop, if it does I want to reduce my SEB position with my available cap losses, PETM is riding a wave and it is in no danger of dropping short term IMHO, I would sell if it cost me nothing
btw can you believe yahoo banned my other account cos i put in the blog link? I am not liking the new CEO
for anyone out there wanting to read, google search "bovinebear value investing" thanks
