If I sell a stock this week which produces a long term capital gain on my 2007 taxes, are there any tax ramifications if I repurchase the same stock the next day (other than establishing a new basis)?

Also a new holding period.

No, I'm not aware of any taxing authority that objects to your deciding to increase your tax liability. Are you sure you want to do this?
