Making sense of loss and grief

Financial Express

17/05/2021 - 09:37

As the second wave of COVID-19 engulfs the country, anxiety and unease suffuse the air. Instead of doom-scrolling the Net and giving in to hopelessness, I turn to books for succour. What lessons can we glean from lives that catapulted from ‘normal’ to ‘catastrophic’ in an instant?

    When does “buy the dip” stop making sense? Is it still just a dip if it has been steadily trending down for months or years? When do you decide that you fucked up and just made a shitty investment in a sinking ship? How do you choose whether to cut your losses and chalk it up and eat the loss?   submitted by   /u/Only_Variation9317 [link]   [comments]

  4. We’re all here to make money (20/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    We’re all here to make money Hi all, I hope everyone is well today but i have a question for you all. As im starting out with such little money in it i was wondering whether It would be best for me to sell at a peak of a spike and rebuy in with that whole amount again on the downfall to the bottom to get more shares. I only put in what i can afford. But want to making more money! 1 I’d have more shares BUT at a higher average. Would the return be greater (obviously due to the extra shares it would) but the return would be smaller due to the sell I done? I hope this makes sense, Im dyslexic for something make sense to me might not make sense to you ???? if it did, then great. Thanks in advance   submitted by   /u/B2214E1918 [link]   [comments]

  5. Common Wash Sale Confusions (09/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've been seeing conflicting descriptions of what happens with wash sales recently and thought it would be good for this community to clarify what happens in different situations. It seems like everyone understands that if you buy a stock 30 days after selling for a loss, that loss isn't deductible. However, there seems to be confusion over the tax implications of subsequent actions. Let's say you originally buy 100 shares of a stock at $100. You then sell those shares at $80, for a $2000 loss. If you rebuy within 30 days, I think most people understand that the $2000 loss is not deductible and instead gets added to your cost basis. Let's say you rebuy 100 shares within 30 days at a price of $70. Your cost basis should now be $7000 + $2000 = $9000. Now, let's say the stock drops again and you sell at $60. This is where there seems to be confusion about what is deductible. My understanding is that the new loss would be $6000 - $9000 = $3000, due to the increased cost basis. QUESTION 1: Is this $3000 loss is deductible, despite the original wash sale? I've been assuming yes, but I see a lot of people that suggest it isn't deductible. Is it correct that deductible losses are always determined from the cost basis at the most recent sale (ignoring long-term vs short-term issues)? I keep seeing people say that the deduction cannot include losses from previous wash sales, but if that is true, why would the wash sale increase the cost basis? I thought that was the point of the increased cost basis. There are horror stories of people making $200k in taxable gains that they lost entirely through wash sales, making them owe taxes on the $200k despite losing it all. Couldn't that only occur if a wash sale occurred within 30 days of a new year, or if they never closed their position after a wash sale? As long as you sold before the new year and didn't rebuy, this couldn't happen, could it? QUESTION 2: Is a wash sale a reason to never rebuy a stock within 30 days? I've frequently see people say "I sold at a loss, so I have to wait 30 days to buy back in otherwise I can't deduct the loss." Isn't this true only if they don't resell that same year, or if they create another wash sale in January? Basically, I'm seeing people wait to get back in on a rising stock simply because it is within 30 days. If you want to be be able to deduct the current loss within this tax year, then sure, that makes sense to wait. However, if you don't mind risking pushing that deduction to a later time, doesn't it make much more sense to buy back in if you think the stock will continue rising? I'm basically seeing people deciding to not rebuy a stock because they are afraid they won't ever be able to deduct a loss. QUESTION 3: Ignoring long-term vs short-term gains/losses, can't you always eventually deduct an equivalent amount regardless of wash sales? Basically, because the cost basis gets adjusted with wash sales, aren't those losses always included when you close your position, either resulting in decreased profits, or increased losses. If so, is there anything critical missing in the suggestion: "don't rebuy within 30 days if you want to deduct the loss within the current year." I understand that tax-loss harvesting strategies can be complex, but many of the explanations I've seen for wash sales seem inaccurate.   submitted by   /u/qwerty5151 [link]   [comments]

  7. Can I offset more than 3k in capital losses from stocks from last year against capital gains from this year with no trader status? (20/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So about me: Got into trading last year, was unemployed, don't have trader tax status So my question is regarding deducting a large capital loss last year against a large capital gain this year and if there is a 3k cap on that if i don't have trader tax status? for example, if last year (2020), let's say i had 20k in capital loss from stocks. Now this year (2021), let's say i have 100k in capital gains. CAn i deduct the full 20k capital loss from last year to this year's 100k capital loss, making my taxable capital gain income essentially 80k? OR since i just a regular trader with no trader tax status with the IRS, i can only deduct 3k of that capital loss this each and the remainder carries over each year, making this year's taxable capital gain income 97k? I'm reading online and there is so many conflicting info. Some say that it's 3k max each year, and you will only be able to deduct 3k until you deduct the full capital loss through the years, every year. Others say that only up to 3k of the 20k loss is deductible if it is against "Regular income", but if you have a huge capital gain this year (like 100k in this example), you can deduct the full 20k for this year. I know, before you guys say go to speak to an expert cpa and etc...yes yes i know, i will.. But i am still also wanting to hear advice or answer of anyone who's been in this situation before. Thank you. I will read up and gather more info in the meanwhile, but i would appreciate any extra insight that anyone here can provide on the situation. Thank you!   submitted by   /u/NoobNup [link]   [comments]

  8. Tax Loss Harvesting question (11/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Looking for some advice on loss harvesting for tax reduction. I have an abnormal amount of short term gain this year (GME) , so am looking at a 40% tax rate I would like to knock it down. I also currently have about an unrealized 30k loss in AAPL along with ARKs etc. that I had put those gains into. I am still bullish on appl and plan to hold long term. Does it make sense to sell the AAPL and purchase an AAPL heavy index fund? Or purchase Long dated Calls? LEAPS ATM are about $15 right now, so if AAPL does go up I don't think the tax break would make up for the extra cost of the option if I exercise for shares.   submitted by   /u/BooyaHBooya [link]   [comments]

  9. Does it make sense? Going long and short on NDX at the same time (26/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, I’m pretty new to day trading (I’ve been investing in ETFs for quite some time tho) and I’m not sure if what I tried in the last days makes sense or it’s just a newbie stupid mistake so I decided to ask more informed people here. In the last days I tried, with paper trading, to open a long and a short position (leveraged) on NASDAQ 100 in pre-market, just a few minutes before market opening, with a small SL. The idea behind is that the big volatility at the market open will trigger the SL of one of the two positions and let the other one run long enough to cover the loss and gain a profit. For now it worked, at least on paper trading. The profit, except for one time, wasn’t anything remarkable but I didn’t lose any money either. So what I’m asking is: would it be risky/stupid to try it out on the real market? Is there something else that can go wrong except that the SL doesn’t trigger in time or that the movement is so fast that it just triggers both SL and leave me with a loss? Thank you a lot for any advice and I’m sorry if this was too much of a stupid question ????   submitted by   /u/ThickVacation3 [link]   [comments]

  10. Should I take the loss and sell my $ROO shares? What are we thinking? (22/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So yes before we start I’m an idiot. A loss-making company in a highly competitive industry, that is one of the few companies that may suffer as the economy opens up and I took the bait and got in on the ICO, thinking I could flip it for a quick profit. Luckily I only took the lowest allocation available so there’s a small silver lining. The stock is currently down 40% from ICO with no good news on the way, is it worth just taking the loss now? My personal sentiment has changed on the company so I no longer see this as a great investment opportunity, especially after the now clear overvaluation of the ICO. What are your perspectives on this situation?   submitted by   /u/TastyTaco217 [link]   [comments]

  15. Best Practices (17/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello fellow investors. I have a question regarding best practices regarding stop loss and trailing stop loss orders. Im obviously new to the wonderful world of stocks but i have absorbed as much information as possible over the last few months. Ive seen some different opinions regarding stop loss and trailing stop loss orders. A few books ive read (Peter Lynch) say never set a stop loss order because you are out of the game for that position if your stock price doesen't increase immediately and you sell. Reading some different online articles ive seen setting a 10 to 20 percent trailing limit order can help prevent losses. So.. I have a Sofi account and a Fidelity account. Started on Sofi but im opening more positions on Fidelity as I learn what to do and what not to do. Right now as a beginner I have about 2k in 7 positions in the biotech and fintech sectors. They are doing well in my opinion, meaning they are mostly in the green so far. My theory is; to always buy into a position on the uptick, and to set a stop loss order a few cents above my cost average asap. Then monitor the price of the stock and if its gets above 15% increase then remove the stop loss order and set a 10% trailing stop limit order for the stock. It makes sense to me because i'm protecting my original investment, and once I see enough gains from a position I can lock it in with a trailing limit order in the hopes that the position will stay green. I'm just looking for any opinions on whether or not this is a good / bad strategy since i cant stare at the charts all day! Thanks in advance for any guidance!   submitted by   /u/Apex057 [link]   [comments]

  16. My portfolio is tanking, do I just ride it out? (03/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am pretty good at being mentally prepared for a loss but sometimes this can be too much. All my stocks are in red, some of them are not even tech stocks and now it's making me scratch my head. I am holding on for dear life at this point. 6K loss on paper. I hand picked these stocks and now I am wondering if I should re think everything. I cant buy the dip anymore because I have no more to give unless I throw emergency funds at it (not going to do that). Should I just wait a month and not look at it? Disney is the only one that is somewhat doing okay, still in red but it's not killing me.

  18. A Different Kind of Wash Sale Question (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I understand how Wash Sales work with regard to selling a security and then buying back a "substantially similar security" within 30 days, but I just became aware of the fact that a wash sale still occurs if you bought the security within 30 days before you sell it as a loss. This doesn't make as much sense to me. Does this mean if you buy a stock and it starts going down a lot and you realize its best to cut your losses, you still have to wait 30 days from the purchase before you sell in order to make the losses deductible? That would be frustrating. Can someone please clear this up, I can't find anything online that specifically speaks to buying, then selling at a loss within 30 days of purchase. Everything just talks about buying back the same stock after selling for a loss, which I understand.   submitted by   /u/idontfuckwithstupid [link]   [comments]

  19. Why is wash sale considered bad? (12/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I am a novice to wash sales and can't wrap my head around why it is bad. Please explain if I am not understanding it right. Let's say I bought 100 shares on Monday last week at 20 dollars a share. Then sold them in panic on Friday Last week at 15 dollars a share. So, I lost 100 * (20-15) = 500 dollars. Now, let's say I bought 100 shares on Monday this week at 22 dollars a share. So, the 500 dollars will be added to this cost basis and I bought the share effectively at 27 dollars a share. Now if I sell at 21 dollars a share, I can claim $600 loss, right? So, this all makes sense to me and I don't feel like an investor is losing anything. I had some wash sales last year and my tax pro is telling me it will increase my taxable gains and reduce my claimable losses. I don't know why people say that. Because, in the above example, it all makes sense to me.   submitted by   /u/FitSkirtShirt [link]   [comments]

  27. Ending relationship with financial advisor (30/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Maybe this is the wrong forum, so if it gets deleted, I understand, but I’m wondering if anyone has any feedback on my situation. I inherited a large sum of investments from a loved one, as the sole beneficiary of their assets. At one point before their unexpected death, my loved one and I had discussed how they wanted to the assets used, including to take care of other family members. I wish my loved one had left a will, as it would have made it so much easier, but they didn’t, so it’s up to me to follow through with their wishes. With inheriting their assets, I also inherited their financial advisor, as I didn’t have one on my own, and at the time, I was so shocked and grief stricken, that I didn’t even consider if this was a relationship that would work for me. The assets and financial advisor are with an institution I find particularly morally horrible in their exploitation of the earth and human kind, and not somewhere I feel great about contributing to. So that’s one issue, but the other is the type of influence this advisor wants to have on my decision making around sharing the assets. Like I said, it’s a large amount of money, and I’ve told the advisor that I’ll be distributing more than half to the rest of my family, and they are not in support of this. It feels pretty out of line to me. Yes, they can share financial advice, obviously, but it’s my money now, and I don’t want to be told not to give it to family, when that’s what my loved one wanted. I’d like to terminate the relationship, but I’m not sure how to go about it, and I’d appreciate any feedback. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/ilovethisforus [link]   [comments]

    I am invested in PLTR. I got a bit too much hype and bought in at the top. My avg is at 27,65.. EURO that is. I only rad up on what they do afterwards and I am somewhat ashamed to admit to that. its only 7,9% of my oervall portfolio but still..... ​ so. here´s my thought process. I really do believe in he company long term. but I hate having cash locked up in positions that do not yield anything in return. I am considering selling at a loss right now, to reinvest into some stock with more short term upsides. anything that beats covid drops or i alredy in the process of recovering. after making up the loss with that I would re-enter at current prices. then resume long term holding. I would buy more to average out lower , but all my other positions seem to work out decent. so : what woud you do ? thanks looking forward to hear some thoughts.   submitted by   /u/psykikk_streams [link]   [comments]

  32. Taxes- Is gain/loss the only thing that really matters when filing? (25/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So here’s the situation. I have been running credit spreads on spy for a while. I am very good with tracking them and making sure to close out if it is unfavorable. A family emergency came about and I was unable to attend to my stocks for two days. I had 10 spy put credit spreads that went ITM at expiry and I was unable to close them out before expiration due to said emergency. A took a net loss of 1000 bucks (which in the grand scheme of things isn’t the worst case scenario but still sucks). Two days later, I look at my TD Ameritrade account and it exercised the short and long leg to cover. Because it exercised basically 1000 shares of spy, it shows up as $420,000 cost and $419,000 proceeds. This equals out to 1000 dollar loss. I obviously did not put up that much capital. My question is, when I go to file my taxes next year, is the only thing I need to worry about is my total net gain/losses for the year? Or will this 420k somehow skew my taxes and mess with my tax bracket at all? This has never happened to me and I am just trying to figure out if anyone else has had a similar situation. Thanks for the help and advice!   submitted by   /u/koberkai [link]   [comments]

    The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) reported a net loss for the first quarter of 2021 as deliveries and service volumes remained under pressure from the COVID-related disruption. The bottom-line missed expectations, while revenues beat. The Illinois-based aircraft maker reported revenues of $15.2 billion, which is down 10% from the first quarter of 2020. The top-line, meanwhile, exceeded experts’ projection. The company reported a loss of $1.53 per share, on an adjusted basis, compared to a loss of $1.7 per share in the year-ago quarter. On a reported basis, it was a net loss of $561 million or $0.92 per share, compared to a loss of $641 million or $1.11 per share last year. Analysts had predicted a narrower loss. Boeing’s stock gained early Wednesday soon after the earnings announcement, after closing the previous session higher. (this story will be updated shortly) The post Boeing (BA) loss narrows in Q1; revenues down 10% first appeared on AlphaStreet.

  37. Complicated wash sale tax question (loss and a future loss) (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m trying to figure out how much I should set aside for taxes for 2021. Please, only helpful comments and no mean comments. As this was my biggest lost on one trade but I did learn a valuable lesson on sizing and risk management of averaging down. I do not trade this ticker anymore. Let’s say my tax bracket is 25%. Say I have two brokerage accounts. One is td ameritrade and the other is webull. 1) My td ameritrade I am positive p/l for the year. Let’s call it +$25,000 with no wash sales for simplicity. 2) My webull account is overall negative loss p/l of $-10,400 (see below for breakdown) In my webull account, total $15,400 loss on common shares. Offset by a $5,000 gain on other securities so a net loss in the account of -$10,400 for the year. Sales below: Feb 12- I bought 100 shares of XYZ. Kept buying shares throughout the day and ended up with 2000 shares XYZ with a $40 average. Feb 12- same day, I sold 1000 shares at $35 for a loss of -$5000. Then I sold another 1000 shares at $30 for a loss of -$10,000. Total loss -$15,000 Feb 12- also same day. I bought and sold options contracts in that ticker. Some for loss some for a gain. Feb 16- bought 1 share. Sold 1 shares for a loss. -$100 loss. Bought 100 shares. Sold 100 shares for a loss. -$100 loss. Total -$200 for the day. Feb 19- bought 100 and sold 100 shares for a loss. $-100 loss for day. Feb 22- bought 100 and sold 100 shares for a loss. $-100 loss for day. Feb 16-22- bought and sold multiple contracts, some gains some losses. My question is- I know the concept behind a wash sale and if I take a loss, buy same security back, the loss amount would be added back to my cost basis of said security and the examples I’ve seen are all added back to a gain. 1)What happens if I took a loss multiple times after buying it back again and again? I did not buy back the initial 2000 shares but only rebought and sold 301 shares (based on this example) within the 30 days. 2)Will the -$15,400 loss in webull be a wash sale? Or only a portion $(400) of it would be a wash sale since I only bought back a portion? Even if I sold the 301 shares I rebought at a loss? 3) Will the options contracts I bought be considered into wash sale? 4) Can someone please provide an example with how much I would be taxed on (estimate) between both of my brokerages given the information at the top? My concern is having to pay taxes on something I lost again and again on. Any value estimate of total or advice I get from Reddit should under no circumstances be used to calculate my potential tax liability Thanks for all your help reading and answering.   submitted by   /u/teatrouble [link]   [comments]

  38. Wash Sale: Taxable and IRA Accounts (04/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    It's my understanding that one can take a loss in a taxable account and then buy a similar position in a IRA (meaning sooner than 31 days after the sale in the taxable account) . These transactions would not cause a wash sale in the taxable account. Does this make sense and am I understanding the law correctly?   submitted by   /u/skipflat [link]   [comments]

  40. Cloudera buyout not making sense $CLDR (01/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    They have around 293 million shares outstanding so that would be around $4.6 billion dollars at 16 a share yet they announced $5.3 billion for the deal which would be be $18 dollars a share. So why did they announce they are being bought out at 16 dollars a share but the deal is $5.3 billion in their press release? Anyone have any idea what is going on here? A $2 dollar difference is kind of a big deal so it definitely has me curious on what is occurring.   submitted by   /u/Jpat863 [link]   [comments]

  42. Tax Advice — capital gains (13/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’ve been trying to make some sense of how to bring down capital gains tax for a stock sale. I’m rebalancing my portfolio, and I have a stock that I’ve held for years and years that’s just too much of my portfolio. However, if I understand correctly, selling it to buy other stocks will trigger capital gains tax. That sucks, but such is life. From what I understand, if I also sell stocks at a loss, the losses will subtract my capital gains tax obligation. So here’s my theory on strategy, but I’m wondering if this would really work: Let’s say I owe $2,000 in capital gains tax for 2021 taxes. I have no losses to sell. I could wait until next tax season and owe $2,000 ... OR... and here’s my idea: If I have to pay uncle sam $2,000 anyway, why don’t I try putting $2,000 in to some very high risk stocks. Best that could happen is they make big gains, and I make more money. Worst that could happen is they tank and then I can sell them for a $2,000 loss, which cancels my capital gains tax obligation. Will this strategy work? Is it a good idea? Somebody here has probably got some good suggestions. Thanks for the ideas.   submitted by   /u/Manofballs [link]   [comments]

  44. I'm pretty sure robinhood uses a first in first out system for unsettled funds/brokerage cash. (27/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So I noticed this yesterday, but I could still be wrong. On Friday I had about $40 worth of brokerage cash that was unsettled funds that should be available for withdrawal by now. During the beginning of this week I've made about $100 (I like to skim off the top) and I put that 100$ into a new stock. What I think happened though, is instead of putting the new $100 in the stock, they put $60 of it along with the $40 that was still settling. Now the $40 of brokerage cash I have is still unsettled because it came from that $100. Am I making any sense? If someone could clarify this I would really appreciate it.   submitted by   /u/bubdubarubfub [link]   [comments]

  46. What's your biggest loss % you've made/still hold on long term holds? (11/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm not talking about some hype stock and then it crashes and you sell, I'm talking about stocks you believed in long term but just kept going down and down. When did you decide to sell and what loss/% did you lose on them? An example might be buying GE in 2016 and holding it through to 2018 to a 75% loss.   submitted by   /u/Fine_Priest [link]   [comments]

  47. Why does pre market exist and why are options not included? (03/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Seems pretty unfair that the market is only “open” from 9:30-4pm yet trading can still take place practically all day long. It really sets you up for failure when a stock closed high but then opens at half its price. I know that “I can trade after hours too” but seriously I cant possibly pay attention to something from 4am-8pm every day. And why aren’t options tradable? I am supposed to just sit there and watch my options loss all its value in pre market but cant do anything about it? If the price can change after hours why cant I tend to my options? Doesn’t make sense to me.   submitted by   /u/MajorKeyBro [link]   [comments]

  48. Help with options stop loss and target (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So, I’m currently on Robinhood, but I’m switching to TradeStation/Trading View link up. I’ve practiced for about 5-6 hours on the bar replay feature doing a certain strategy, and I’m wanting to start implementing it. Id like to do it with options, but I need to be able to set a stop loss and target based on the stock price, not the options price. Is there a way to do this on that platform? I’m not going to do optionspricecalculator on both the target and stop loss on different dates. Thats too much. I just need to be able to set a stop loss and target for an option, on the stock price. Thanks so much!   submitted by   /u/bopoff-entirely [link]   [comments]

  49. Assessing a Company's Worth (25/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, can anyone tell me what the formula is for market cap and how to assess if a stock is overvalued or not based on its current price? I always see price prediction and then some other guy will comment and be like that would put the company at a 5B market cap or whatever. Also what does the market cap correlate to on an earnings sheet (if that makes sense)? I would ask for other ways to assess, but I do not really understand PE/PB/EBITDA at all. Also, I often see a company had positive earnings, but then it says like a loss in revenue or something? Thanks for any help and sorry because I know this is poorly put together and noobish. I bought PLUG at 50 and NIO at 60 and I would like not to do that sort of thing again. Thanks again!   submitted by   /u/Potential-Guide-9562 [link]   [comments]
