Value investing is a quest for inefficiencies. They can come in many forms, and among the most predictable and reliable is the annual culling of poor-performing stocks to generate tax losses to offset gains elsewhere in a portfolio. Stocks that have fallen during the year can come under brief, and sometimes intense, selling pressure.
To take advantage of it, you’ll need to watch for price falls and act swiftly when you find them. To that end, as in prior years, we’ve compiled a watch list of stocks that may come under tax loss selling pressure.
