[[Wouldn't buying a put option be a simpler hedge? Or would that cost more? (I've never bought or sold an option in my life, so this discussion remains academic for me. I also don't know what tax effects, if any, the purchase of an offsetting put option would have.)]]In my current featured article in the Taxes FAQ area (The Constructive Sale Rules) deals with this issue. The problem is that I haven't yet written Part IV of the article that deals with options and appreciated financial positions. But I should have it done by tomorrow...and I'll try to remember to post it up here in the folder for my friends to see an "premier" of those issues.TMF TaxesRoy
