  4. What affect does the purchase of treasury stock have on the balance sheet?
    The Treasury Stock account would increase by the cost of the shares purchased.

  5. Outstanding stock
    The term outstanding stock means the number of shares of issued stock that are being held by stockholders
  6. Why do corporations issue stock dividends or do stock splits?
    Stock dividends often issued by companies that don't have enough cash to issue a cash dividend. This way they are still offering a gesture for something. Decreases RI, increases PIC. Issued: pro rata (proportional to ownership)

    Stock splits - issues additional shares of stock to holders according to their % ownership. However stock split results in a reduction in the par value or stated value of the stock. Purpose: to increase the marketability of the stock by lowering it's market value per share. Makes it easier to sell additional stock.
  7. What effect do Stock Dividends have on retained earnings and stockholders' equity? Also, how do they affect par value and market value?
    • Total paid in capital              increase
    • Total retained earnings         decrease
    • Total par value(common)     increase
    • Par value per share              No change
  8. What effect do Stock Splits have on retained earnings and stockholders' equity? Also, how do they affect par value and market value?

    • Par value per share              Decrease
    • Basically, Stock Splits decrease the price of the stock, but doesn't affect any balance sheet accounts/dollar amounts. The Stock Dividends, on the other hand, increase PIC, Decrease RI, increase total par value common stock, but doesn't affect the par value per share price.

    Item that satisfies BOTH conditions below

    Companies report extraordinary items net of taxes in a separate section of the income statement, immediately below discontinued operations, but before Net Income.
  18. Irregular Items
    • Companies report two types of irregular items
    • 1. Discontinued Operations
    • 2. Extraordinary Items

    Reported net of tax. If there's a gain, subtract the portion of tax. If there's a loss, reduce the loss by subracting the taxes you saved. In both scenaries, you subtract the tax amount.
  19. What type of statement uses component percentages?
    Vertical Analysis. But the book doesn't really label it as its own statement.
  20. ("statement")Vertical Analysis
    AKA common size analysis. Compares the parts to the whole. Current liabilities, long-term liabilities measured in relation to Total liabilities. (Amounts and Percentages). Ditto with Current Assets, Long term assets, and Total Assets, and with the Stockholder's equity accounts. And with total Liabilities and Stockholder's equity. You can measure different slices, but the base amount will always be considered at 100%. You can measure the Income statment by vertical analysis, but most of our HW had us measuring the balance sheet this way.

    • AKA Trend Analysis
    • Comparing a companies performance with previous years/balance statement years. etc.
    • Presented as % change (for each balance sheet account) compared to the last year (or to the base year). Income statement can also be analyzed this way

    Beginning On the left (debit) side, we have

    • Debit side                                  Credit Side
    • Beginning WIP                   |  =COGS or is it COGM?
    • +Direct Materials used       | this gets "transferred/exported

    • + Factory Ovrhd
    • Total=Ending WIP
  25. What are the differences between product costs and period costs?
    • PRODUCT COSTS: manufacturing costs. becomes part of COGS/COGM=
    • DL
    • DM
    • Manufacturing overhead (the overhead= indirect materials, indirect labor, and other indirect costs)

    • PERIOD COSTS=nonmanufacturing costs. Expenses are matched with the revenue for the period=
    • Selling expenses
    • Administrative Expenses
  26. Indirect materials
    • Raw materials that cannot be easily associated with the finished product.
    • Not physically part of the finished product or they are an insignificant part of finished product in terms of cost.
    • Considered part of manufacturing overhead
  27. Indirect labor
    • =Supervisors
    • Work of factory employees that has no physical association with the finished product or for which it is impractical to trace costs to the goods produced.
    • Part of mfg overhead.
  28. Direct labor
    Work of factory employees that can be physically and directly associated with converting raw materials into finished goods.
  29. How do you do a journal entry for the sale of common stock in excess of par

    •       PIC in excess of par value................................4,000
    •           (to record issuance of  1,000 shares
    •           of common stock in excess or par)

    Cost of beginning WIP + mfg costs for the period=Total WIP for the year. 

    Total WIP cost - Ending WIP inventory = Cost of goods manufactured
