Tom et al,

I'm another happy "Motley Fool Stock Advisor" member! I bought TREE at $13.19 on June 27, 2002. Since I don't really understand USA Interactive, I plan to sell TREE. The question is timing. The downside of selling tomorrow is I pay short-term capital gains. If I wait until June 28, 2003, I'll pay the lower, long-term capital gains. Seems like an easy decision...or am I missing something? What's the risk of waiting to sell? (Maybe you can tell I'm new at this...)
