Required: In early December of 2013, Blue Corp. purchased $40,000 of Yellow Company common stock, which
constitutes less than 3% of Yellow's outstanding shares. Blue accounts for the Yellow investment as
available for sale. By December 31, 2013, the value of the Yellow investment had fallen to $30,000,
and Blue recorded an unrealized loss. By December 31, 2014, the value of the Yellow investment had
fallen to $15,000, and Blue determined that it can no longer assert that it has both the intent and ability
to hold the shares long enough for their fair value to recover, so Blue recorded an OTT impairment. By
December 31, 2015, fair value had recovered to $20,000.
