The stocks in the taxable account are from a completely different company (F), and I've held them for a long time because they did so well. Now I worry about selling them because of taxes on the profits.
Would you like to hear about how I solved my problem about selling CSCO and incurring a short-term gain? Rode that puppy all the way down to a loss that provided me a carryover for a couple of years. Bad decision.
As we like to say in these parts, Don't let the tax tail wag the investment dog (DLTTWID). If you have a better use for the current value of F, sell all or part of it.
