It's never fun to have a losing investment, but the loser stocks you own can offer one crumb of comfort - you can use the losses to offset capital gains elsewhere in your portfolio. If you're like most investors, you may be ignoring the stocks that have handed you big losses because the loss is "just on paper." Unfortunately, not selling a stock just because it's down doesn't make a lot of sense, since the price you paid for the stock has absolutely no bearing on its future performance.
