I can see that there a number of variables involved, but are you aware of a formula for comparing the after-tax consequences of selling and repurchasing a stock vs holding the stock and buying puts,assuming the following:Stock has been held for more than 18 monthsStock has low cost-basis compared to current priceStock is expected to drop before option expiresStock is expected to stay low long enough to avoid wash saleStock is expected to bounce back long-termI assume that a key factor is the time premium of the put option, but I'm not sure where the after-tax break-even is.
