Barry ask me to re-post this question over here.

I was reading over the FAQ for Tax Strategies and came across Roy Lewis' example of how to identify which stock was sold from purchases made in Jan & Feb.
Does this example only pertain to those who have their stock held in street name by their broker? If he had actual stock certificates for purchases made in Jan and Feb wouldn't he be able to sell which ever shares he wanted as the certificate would be the identifier?

Hello Fellow Fool,

That's a good question for Roy and the other tax gurus. Try posting your question over on their domain:
