I put away all the losses that I need (and more than I wanted) in late April to mid-May.

I once read a very smart piece on taking one's tax losses by the end of June and that is what I try to do.

My original post, was not so much about taking tax losses as "hopefully" benefitting from those that do.

In the REIT area, one I am looking at is SHO. Lodging REIT with great balance sheet, but as with most travel stocks VERY poor recent performance.

A vaccine could end that recent poor performance and hopefully enough people will still have enough $ left to travel.

I hold and have sold a bunch of small to medium banks stocks that are currently in the low $20's. I am prepared to both buy more in the mid-teens (barring much further economic erosion), but am equally willing to sell some of them in the upper $20's and perhaps all of them in the $30's again somewhat dependent upon the economic/pandemic situation.

I am currently both selling life insurance companies after a few up days and buying them on significant dips.

My last area of interest is energy. I have only bought natgas related stocks this year. Fundamentals are quite positive, but as always the known unknown is WEATHER.
