So here's my question: Can I take advantage of selling these stocks at a loss on my taxes?


Sure, you can treat them like any other loss on the disposal of a stock. The catch is that you are going to have to come up with the cost basis for each of these positions, which may be hard if you were buying small amounts of each stock, including fractions, each month.
