Consider looking at the late December new Low list in the Wall Street Journal or in Barron's for a prospecting list of new Buy ideas.

In 1997 Apple(AAPL) was one of the companies on that list so I bought a lot of Apple shares at $10 1/4 per share. After a subsequent two-for-share split, the cost of my Apple shares inside my IRA became $5.125 per share. Apple is, of course, somewhat higher than that now in 2012.

When will tax loss selling peak? I suppose last day is three business days before end of the year. On my calendar, that looks like Christmas Eve, Dec 24. But given the festive spirit of the times, shopping, parties, and lots of distractions, you might suspect that selling may already be in progress, but will get serious in the weeks after Thanksgiving.
