While reviewing the March 31, 2014, balance sheet of Success
Systems, Adria Lopez notes that the business has built a large cash balance of
$77,845. Its most recent bank money market statement shows that the funds are
earning an annualized return of 0.75%. Adria Lopez decides to make several
investments with the desire to earn a higher return on the idle cash balance.
Accordingly, in April 2014, Success Systems makes the following investments in
trading securities:
April 16 Purchases 400 shares of Johnson and Johnson stock at
$50 per share plus $300 commission
April 30 Purchases 200 shares of Starbucks Corporation at $22
per share plus $250 commission
On June 30, 2014, the per share market price (fair value) of the
Johnson & Johnson shares is $55 and the Starbucks shares is $19.
