My suggestion -- If your Juniper is NOT in a tax deferred account, Sell it and take the tax loss -- use the loss to offset any gains that you may have and/or up to $3,000 of ordinary income if the loss exceeds any of your gains -- carry the remaining loss forward until it's gone. Wait 30 days and buy back the stock for your long term strategy --- the loss does you no good on paper. And whatever rebound occurs in 30 days certainly won't beat your tax savings... what is your breakeven point on the transaction?Example: 10 shares at 240 = 2400 10 shares at 30 = 300 tax loss= 2100 @ 25% tax bracket = 525 tax savingsstock would have to rise from 30 to 82.50 in less than 30 days to make this decision a bad one.You might be talking about a lot more money depending up0on your actual situation; and the plan also requires that you clearly evaluate your other gains, etc...see how your numbers add up.Just a thought.
