Appendix H-3 ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS 1. Companies invest because (1) they have excess cash for a short period of time, or (2) they want to generate investment income or (3) they have strategic reasons such as controlling a competitor or supplier or entering a new industry. 2. (a) The cost of an investment in bonds consists of the market price of the bonds plus any brokerage fees. (b) Interest is recorded as it is earned; that is, over the life of the investment in bonds. 3. (a) Losses and gains on the sale of debt investments are computed by comparing the cost of the securities to the net proceeds from the sale. (b) Losses are reported in the income statement under other expenses and losses whereas gains are reported under other revenues and gains. 4. Nickle Company is incorrect. The gain is the difference between the net proceeds, exclusive of interest, and the cost of the bonds. The correct gain is $3,000 [($45,000 – $2,000) – $40,000]. 5. The cost of an investment in stock includes all expenditures necessary to acquire the investment. These expenditures include the actual purchase price plus any commissions or brokerage fees. 6. Brokerage fees are part of the cost of the investment. Therefore, the entry is: Stock Investments.
