<i>"when will they be deleted from my brokerage account and the capital gains loss appear? Or will they continue to remain in my brokerage account indefinitely until I do something with them" <br /> </i> <br /> <br /> How would we know? We don't even know who your broker is or what country it's in. Shouldn't you ask your broker? <br /> <br /> Offhand, I'd think the zero valuation would remain for a long time. Otherwise some investors would wonder what happened to their RSH shares. <br /> <br /> As for taking the loss on your taxes (RSHCQ became worthless in 2015), ask your tax advisor and not a stock bulletin board best known for scams. <br /> <b> <br /> I will repeat what I said a year ago: Smart investors dump deeply troubled investments early on</b>... when they still have some flexibility.
