I'm getting ready to sell some stock and am trying to decide which lots to specify. I see 3 options:1) If I include shares purchased for more than the current price (this is a loss), I don't think the tax break is worth taking a loss for. 2) Or, if I sell shares purchased at about the same as the current price, I just break even, which doesn't make sense because I bought them to make money not just break even. 3) But, if I sell shares purchased below the current price, I have to pay the capital gains.My instinct says to sell the shares that I bought at the price closest to the current price. Advice? Thanks.
