Subject: Re: Buy stock at 2 prices-which one sells? - (and I guess for tax strategy - I hadn't thought about that as much)

<< I bought some EMC at 48 & 56. Then I bought some more at 52. I want to
definitely hold the 48 buy for a long time. I would like to sell the 56
for short term (at 60 or so). Which "bunch" will sell? Do I get to choose?
Or, does it average it out? If this the case, how can you short-term
buy/sell the same stock?
