Use rerospective valuation and then begin to use Fair value valuation of the investment account from 2019 and beyond
First, it should be noted that Jordan will make use of different methods to account for change in its account.
A first method will apply to a retrospective adjustment method to make relevant changes in the investment account
The second step is to now use the fair-value method for his account from 2019 and beyond.
The idea of using a retrospective method is to engage or apply a new accounting pricnciple as though it has always been applied, using the retrospective method will assist Jordan to compare teh year 2018 where it had significant influence over the opeations of Nico to 2019 and future years when it begins to use the fair-value method of investment valuation.
California supplies the United States with 80% of its eating oranges. In late 1998, four days of freezing temperatures in the state's Central Valley substantially damaged the orange crop. In early 1999, Food Lion, with 1,208 grocery stores mostly in the Southeast, said its prices for fresh oranges would rise by 20% to 30%, which was less than the 100% increase it had to pay for the oranges. Explain why the price to consumers did not rise by the full amount of Food Lion's price increase. The price to consumers rose by 20% to 30% instead of the full 100% because A. the elasticity of supply was perfectly elastic. B. the demand curve was vertical. C. as prices increased, consumers demanded less output. D. the elasticity of demand was perfectly inelastic. E. consumers were not sensitive to prices.
C. as prices increased, consumers demanded less output.
Elasticity of demand measures the responsiveness of quantity demanded to changes in price.
If demand is elastic, it means quantity demanded is more sensitive to changes in price.
If demand is inelastic, it means that quantity demanded is less sensitive to changes in price.
If demand is perfectly elastic, it means that consumers would demanding a product if price is increased. It is represented by a horizontal demand curve.
If demand is perfectly inelastic, it means that quantity demanded doesn't change regardless of changes in price. It is represented by a vertical demand curve.
The elasticity of supply measures the degree of responsiveness of quantity supplied to changes in price.
If supply is elastic, it means quantity supplied is more sensitive to changes in price.
If supply is inelastic, it means that quantity supplied is less sensitive to changes in price.
If supply is perfectly elastic, it means that producers would stop supplying a product if price is increased. It is represented by a horizontal supply curve.
If supply is perfectly inelastic, it means that quantity supplied doesn't change regardless of changes in price. It is represented by a vertical supply curve.
It is seen from the question that the burden of the damage to oranges is borne by the producers more than the consumers. This indicates that the elasticity of demand is more price elastic .

The current dividend yield of CyTrade’s stock is 3%. The company just paid a $1.48 annual dividend today and will pay a dividend of $1.54 next year. The dividend growth rate is expected to remain at the current level. What is the required rate of return on the stock?
The required rate of return on the stock is 7.1%.
First we will use the dividend yield to find the current stock price.
Dividend yield= Dividend per share/ Share price.
0.03= 1.48/Share price
Share price = 1.48/0.03= 49.33
Next we will find the growth rate of the stock by using next year and this years dividend.
Growth = (Dividend 1-Dividend 0)/Dividend 1
Now we will input these values in the Gordon growth model in order to find the required return of the stock. The formula is
Stock price= Dividend 1/Required return on equity- Growth rate
49.33=1.54/Required return - 0.04
49.33 required return -1.9732=1.54
49.33 Required return = 1.54+1.9732
Required return = 3.5132/49.33
Required return =0.071
A payday loan company has decided to open several new locations in the city. To decide where to open these locations it hires consultants and decides to pay them per location opened. The company should expect to see a. A small number of badly selected stores b. A small number of well selected stores c. A large number of badly selected stores d. A large number of well selected stores
c. A large number of badly selected stores.
A "payday loan company" is a type of lending company that loans money to people according to their salary and record of employment. This is also known as a "salary loan" which a person can borrow and pay on his next salary day. Most of the time, the interest of such loan is high thus, it becomes essential for jurisdictions to have a limit on the APR (annual percentage rate) being charged.
In the situation above, the payday loan company focused on paying the consultants according to the locations that they are able to open. So, this means that the consultants will not focus much on the profitability of the stores. They will then try to open in many locations within the city. This will then result to a large number of badly selected stores.
So, the company will have to expect that many of the stores will not be able to meet the company's expectations at the end of the fiscal year. They have to change their way to give incentives to the consultants.
On September 30, Silver Corporation, a calendar year taxpayer, sold a parcel of land (basis of $400,000) for a $1 million note. The note is payable in five installments, with the first payment due next year. Because Silver did not elect out of the installment method, none of the $600,000 gain is taxed this year. Silver Corporation had a $300,000 deficit in accumulated E&P at the beginning of the year. Before considering the effect of the land sale, Silver had a deficit in current E&P of $50,000. Sam, the sole shareholder of Silver, has a basis of $200,000 in his stock. If silver distributes $900,000 to Sam on December 31, How much income must he report for tax purposes?
Sam must report $700,000 distribution from Silver on his Income report.
The sale of the land is made by the corporation and the corporation is a tax payer therefore any gains and losses are for the company to pay tax on.
The deficits in the E&P are for Silver to take into account when about to pay taxes.
The basis of $200,000 is not income but cost and subtracted on the distribution income as is for Sam.

Record journal entries
Additional missing information:
Prepare journal entries to record the following transactions for Sherman Systems. a. Purchased 6.400 shares of its own common stock at $39 per share on October 11.
b. Sold 1,350 treasury shares on November 1 for $45 cash per share
c. Sold all remaining treasury shares on November 25 for $34 cash per share
we record at cost when the purchase is made:
6,400 shares x $39 each = 249,600
Then, at sale we compare the cahs proceed with our cost and crease an additional paid-in treasury stock if needed
we sale 1,350 at $45 = 60,750
cost 1,350 x $39 = 52,650
additional paid-in treasury stocks 8,100
6,400 - 1,350 = 5,050 shares in treasury remaining
IF sale occur below csot, we decrease the paid-in TS or retained earnings.
5,050 x $34 = 171,700
5,050 x $35 = 176,750
decrease to additional paid-in TS 5,050
Your pro forma income statement shows sales of $ 966,000, cost of goods sold as $ 522,000, depreciation expense of $ 105,000, and taxes of $ 135,600 due to a tax rate of 40 %. What are your pro forma earnings? What is your pro forma free cash flow?
The pro forma earnings are $203,400
The pro forma free cash flow is $308,400
The pro forma income statement shows sales of $966,000, cost of goods sold as $522,000, depreciation expense of $105,000, and taxes of $135,600.
The pro forma earnings = Sales - cost of goods sold - depreciation expense - taxes = $966,000 - $522,000 - $105,000 - $135,600 = $203,400
The pro forma free cash flow = Sales - cost of goods sold - taxes = $966,000 - $522,000 - $135,600 = $308,400
Note: Depreciation is a non-cash accounting expense, so it doesn't involve cash flow.

The income statement for the Carolina Service Company for the year ended December 31, 2017, appears below. Sales revenue $670,000 Cost of goods sold 390,000 Gross profit 280,000 Expenses 180,000 * Net income $100,000 *Includes $25,000 of interest expense and $20,000 of income tax expense. Additional information: 1. Common stock outstanding on January 1, 2017, was 50,000 shares. On July 1, 2017, 10,000 more shares were issued. 2. The market price of Carolina's stock was $22 at the end of 2017. 3. Cash dividends of $35,000 were paid, $5,000 of which were paid to preferred stockholders. Compute the following ratios for 2017: (Round earnings per share to 2 decimal places, e.g. 2.25 and all other answers to 1 decimal place e.g. 15.5.) (a) Earnings per share $ (b) Price-earnings times (c) Times interest earned times
Sales revenue = $670,000
Cost of goods sold = 390,000
Gross profit = 280,000
Expenses = 180,000
Net income = $100,000
Interest expense = $25,000
Income tax expense = $20,000
(a) Earnings per share:
= (Net income - Preferred dividend) ÷ Weighted average common stock
= ($100,000 - $5,000) ÷ 55,000
= $95,000 ÷ 55,000
= Stock price ÷ Earnings per share
= $22 ÷ $1.73
(c) Income before interest and taxes:
= Net income + Interest expense + Income taxes
= $100,000 + $25,000 + $20,000
Times interest earned:
= Income before interest and taxes ÷ Interest expenses
= $145,000 ÷ $25,000

III) Investors choose the portfolio that maximizes their expected utility.
Answer:II) More risk-averse investors will invest less in the optimal risky portfolio and more in the risk-free security than less risk-averse investors. III) Investors choose the portfolio that maximizes their expected utility.
Explanation:The capital allocation line is a line created in a graph by investors in an economy to display or identify the potential risks involved in taking risky decisions. This line is one the determining factors to ensure that the investor has adequate knowledge about the risky nature of a capital investment.
Investors generally choose portfolios that guarantee maximum profits with reduced chances of loss. More risk averse investor will choose or opt for less risky portfolio.
Pete qualifies for a home office deduction. The amount of space devoted to business use is 300 square feet of the total 1,200 square feet in his apartment. Pete's total rent for the year is $9,600, and he pays utilities (other than telephone) of $2,500 for the year.Calculate Pete’s deduction for home office expenses before the gross income limitation. Rent $ ____________________
Utilities other than telephone ____________________
Total home office expenses $ ____________________
Rent is $2400
utilities other than cellphone is $625
Total home office expenses is $3025
firstly we need to calculate the percentage of how much in total does the office take in the apartment so we will say (300 square feet/1200 square feet) x 100
which is 25% so then to get the rental expense of the office we will say :
25%x$9600 = $2400 we say 25% which is office space in the apartment multiplied by the total apartment rental to get the office rent expense.
Then for the utilities we will say 25%x$2500 = $625 we multiply like this because the office uses 25% of all the apartment utilities .
thereafter the total home office expenses is the sum of both the rental office expense plus the the utilities other than telephone for the home office expense:
$625 + $2400 = $3025 then we get total home office expenses.
Problem 2-15 (Algo) Sailmaster makes high-performance sails for competitive windsurfers. Below is information about the inputs and outputs for one model, the Windy 2000.

(Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)
The productivity in sales revenue/labor expense=3.13
Units sold=1,216 units
Price of each unit=$1,700
Total labor hours=47,172
The productivity in sales revenue/labor expense=?
The productivity in sales revenue/labor expense=
The productivity in sales revenue/labor expense=
The productivity in sales revenue/labor expense=3.13
In the aftermath of a hurricane, an entrepreneur buys generators at $530 each from a store in an area unaffected by the hurricane. He then sells them in the hardest-hit area for $900 apiece. What does the purchase of these generators by hurricane victims, at a 70% markup, say about the equilibrium price of generators following a natural disaster?
A shift in the demand curve will create a new equilibrium point.
Those who voluntarily purchase the generators believe them to be worth the marked-up price.
The effect of price ceilings is to make behavior like the entrepreneur’s illegal.
The options to this question wasn't provided. Here are the options:
Any price ceiling imposed on generators in the affected area would create a surplus. O A shift in the demand curve will create a new equilibrium point. O Those who voluntarily purchase the generators believe them to be worth the marked-up price. O The effect of price ceilings is to make behavior like the entrepreneur’s illegal.
After the hurricane, the price of generators increased. This could mean that the demand for generators increased. If the demand for generators increased while supply remains unchanged, demand would outstrip supply and prices would rise.
This leads to the conclusion that there is a scarcity in the market and not a surplus.
A price ceiling is when the government or an agency of the government sets the maximum price for a good. If the government sets a price ceiling for generators, it would lead consumers to believe that the price of the generators is too high and that the seller is exploiting them. Thus, the sellers activities are illegal.
People who buy at the market price believe that the generator is worth the price. A rational consumer would only buy a good If his willingness to pay is greater or equal to the price of the product.

It is reasonable to state that one object has twice as much of the attribute property when it has a score of 60 and the other object has a score of 30 when measurement is on a(n) ____ scale.
The correct answer is:
A ration scale of measurement is one that has equal units of measurement, and has an absolute value of zero. Measurements below the zero point on the scale is not possible. for example in the measurement of height in meters, the lowest measurement possible is 0 meter, a measurement of - 1 meter will make no mathematical sense. In this example, if a score of 60 is said to have twice as much attributes than a score of 30, it means that this attributes are measured from a reference zero point, because truly, 60 is twice as much as 30, from a zero point on a scale.
The other scales of measurements include;
nominal scale of measurement; which contains mainly categorical data and is mainly used in form of tags rather than showing magnitude or intervals. Example is grouping a group of adults into married, divorced or single.
Ordinal scale; this scale shows hierarchical series or ordered series, but does not show intervals between the elements. example is in classifying the positions of participants in a race as first, second or third etc. There is an ordering, as the first position is on top of the list, but it will now make sense to say the distance between the attribute of first to third position is the same as the distance between the attributes between third and fifth position, as there is no scale.
Interval scale; this scale of measurement does not have a limit zero value which represents the least possible point on a scale, but the intervals between different units on the scale can be compared logically. Example is the measurement of temperature using the Fahrenheit scale, where the temperature can go as low as - 20°F, below the zero point, and a distance of 3°F to 5°F can be said to be equal to a distance of 10°F to 12°F.
Carol is a recent high-school graduate with an excellent grade point average. After much thought, she decides to pursue a graduate degree in physics after she finishes her undergraduate degree and eventually become a professor. To attain this goal, she realizes that she must first study hard and do well in her undergraduate classes, then take the graduate entrance exam and apply to the best graduate programs in her field. Along the way, she wants to obtain an internship, as this will help her get into a quality graduate program. Which motivational mechanism of the goal-setting process does this scenario demonstrate?
Hi, you haven't provided the options to the question so I will just give the answer in my own words and you can check with the options.
Answer is GOAL COMMITMENT.
Goal setting involves the development of an action plan designated to motivate and guide a person or group towards a goal.
It involves establishing specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-targeted (S.M.A.R.T) goals.
The different motivation mechanism of goal setting are: self-efficiency or efficacy, goal commitment, importance of goal outcome, commitment to others.
In this scenario, Carol already has a goal which is to become a professor and so she realizes that to attain this goal, there has to be a commitment ( to study hard and do well in her undergraduate classes, apply for a graduate program afterwards and also an internship).
Therefore, the motivational mechanism of goal setting process this scenario demonstrates is GOAL COMMITMENT.
You take out a loan for $100,000 at an annual interest rate of 5.9% that is to be paid with three equal annual payments of $37,341.79. How much principal will be paid in the second year?
The principal repaid in the second year will be $33,296.
Out of each 37,341.79 payment a part of it will be principal repayment and a part of it will be interest payment. When the first 100,000 is paid (0.059*100,000)=5,900 is interest and (37,341-5,900)= 31,441 is principal repayment which means, that in the second year the principal remaining is (100,000-31,441)=68,559. So the interest payment in the second year will be (0.059*68,559)=4,045 and the principal repaid will be (37,341-4,045)=33,296.
Venzuela Company’s net income for 2020 is $50,000. The only potentially dilutive securities outstanding were 1,000 options issued during 2019, each exercisable for one share at $6. None has been exercised, and 10,000 shares of common were outstanding during 2020. The average market price of Venzuela’s stock during 2020 was $20.(a) Compute diluted earnings per share. (Round answer to 2 decimal places, e.g. $2.55.)
Answer explained below
options issued = 1000
exercise per share = $6
market price = $20
net income = $50000
a) Diluted earnings per share
= (Total income - preference dividends) /( outstanding shares + diluted shares)
Amount paid towards shares = Options issued * Exercise price per share = 1,000 * 6 = $ 6,000
Value of options = Amount paid towards shares / Current market price = $ 6,000 /$ 20 = 300
Diluted shares = Options issued - value of options = 1000 - 300 = 700
So Diluted Earnings per share = ( 50,000) / ( 10,000 +700) = $ 4.67 per share.
b) Calculation of diluted shares 700 (same as above )
Weighted average for the period holding i.e, 3 months = 700 *3/12 = 175 shares increased during the period.
Diluted EPS = 50,000 /(10,000 +175) = $ 4.91 per share
If current assets amount to $120,000, total assets are $600,000, current liabilities are $60,000, long term debt is $340,000 and total liabilities are $400,000, what is the current ratio?
Current ration is a financial measure used to measure how many times a company's current assets can be used to meet its current obligation
Current ratio = current asset/current liabilities
Current assets = $120,000
Current liabilities = $400,000 - $340,000
Current ratio = $120,000/$60,000 = 2 times
At an interest rate of 7%, you can have approximately $18,000 twelve (12) years from now by depositing $___________ every year for the next twelve years assuming the deposits take place at the end of each year.
The correct answer is $1,006.24.
According to the scenario, the given data are as follows:
Rate of interest (r) = 7%
Future value = $18,000
Time (t) = 12 years
So, We can calculate the payment to deposit by using following formula:
FV = Pmt ((( 1 + r)^t - 1) ÷ r )
$18,000 = Pmt ((( 1 + 0.07)^12 - 1) ÷ 0.07)
Pmt = $1,006.24
Hence, the amount that should be deposited every year is $1,006.24.
"Marshall Enterprises charged the following amounts of overhead to jobs during the year: $20,000 to jobs still in process, $60,000 to jobs completed but not sold, and $120,000 to jobs finished and sold. At year-end, Marshall Enterprise's Factory Overhead account has a credit balance of $5,000, which is not a material amount. What entry should Marshall make at year-end?"
Jobs still in process = $20,000
Jobs completed but not sold = $60,000
Jobs finished and sold = $120,000
Marshall Enterprise's Factory Overhead account has a credit balance of $5,000
Therefore, the journal entry is as follows:
Factory overhead A/c Dr. $5,000
To Cost of goods sold A/c $5,000
(To record the cost of goods sold)
