<<You then recharacterize the 32K in roth#2 back to the IRA. In essence, you have been able to convert whichever of the stocks that will do best, and all you have to do is some extra bookkeeping.>>
Make sense? Worthwhile doing?

You're getting 2 swings at a pitch at the cost of some extra bookkeeping.
It probably makes more sense during a time of high market volatility where you could choose two investments likely to have greatly divergent outcomes.
