In addition to that, if you losses exceed your gains, you can use losses to reduce your other taxable income up to a limit of $3000. If you lost $20K on CCME, and had $25K in gains - you can offset $20K of the gain with your CCME loss and have a $5K net taxable gain. If you had $17K in gains, your $20K loss would offset those and also reduce your other taxable income by $3K. However, if you only had $15 K of gains that year, your $20K loss would offset those, reduce your other taxable income by $3, and give you a $2K loss carryover to the next year. If I could afford to buy all of them, I would not need to buy any of them and I sure wouldn't be spending time on the message boards!
