MORRISTOWN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/17/07 -- This year's volatile market
offers a golden opportunity to "harvest" tax losses, says Jerry Miccolis, a
senior advisor with Brinton Eaton Wealth Advisors in Morristown, NJ. "It's a
have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too strategy if you do it right."
Suppose Jane Doe sells her entire $50,000 position in a mid-cap index ETF
(Fund A) at, say, a $5,000 short-term loss and immediately invests the
proceeds in another ETF (Fund B) that tracks the same index.
"Jane made the right move. She has stockpiled tax losses while leaving her
asset allocation unchanged," he says.
Her loss can be used to offset any realized gains. So if Jane sells her
shares in XYZ Technology for a $5,000 short-term gain this year, she won't
pay additional tax. If she doesn't have any realized gains, she can offset up
to $3,000 in ordinary income and carry over the... (more)
Farm tractors and military tanks share an intertwined history that started
when some smart person proposed the tracks on some farming equipment as the
cross-country tool that tanks needed to get across a rubble and shell-hole
strewn World War One battlefield. For the ensuing sixty years, improvements
in one set of tracks spurred improvements in the other. Early on it was the
farm vehicles developing improvements, but through World War Two and even
some today, tanks did most of the developing. That is simply a case of
experience. Farmers and farm tractor manufacturers had more experience when
tanks were first invented, but the second world war and the variety of
terrain, climate, and usage gave tanks the edge. After World War Two, the
Cold War drove much more research money into tank improvements than
commercial tractors received, so the trend continued. In fact, con... (more)
