Usually you see the inevitable rebalancing at quarter end for the mutuals. I guess the only thing I do proactively is wait until mutual funds with big estimated cap gains pay them, and then buy the shares at a reduced price..........

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)
