I think you are wrong on the wash sale rule applying on your hypothetical loss, since you are buying a different security. They are in the same line of work, but so what: Ford and GM both build cars but if you sold Ford at a loss and immediately bought GM, there is no wash sale there.The wash sale rule does not apply on gains. Your gain will be taxable.
