Tactics that Work in Good Markets and Bad
 
--

Sell Before the Tax Man Takes More!

One dominating theme of the past two days is that a good chunk of the selling is likely motivated by coming tax increases on dividends and long-term capital gains. Not only could the cap gains rate go from 15% to 20%, the Affordable Care Act slaps another 3.8% surtax on top of that for top earners.

So while investors debate the probable compromises and impacts of the sunset of the Bush era tax cuts and automatic spending cuts that go into effect January 1 (i.e., the meat and potatoes of the Fiscal Cliff), the expected tax blows to stock profits is real enough now to make investors cash-in now and keep pressure on this market for weeks.

The S&P closed down 1.2%, just below its 200-day moving average at 1,380. But the rush for the exits is nowhere more visible, or emotional, than in Apple. What 37.5 million shares changing hands means (more than 2X avg) is LOTS of pain for fund managers who probably never imagined they'd be cashing-in below $550.

When will it end? Hard to say right now. S&P 1,350 is only 2% away. Without a clear sign from Washington that solid progress on the "Congressional Canyon" (Fiscal Cliff) is being made, that's the next strong support.
