Case (Gen Exp)
A general contracting company specializing in the construction of single-family homes was known for its exceptional craftsmanship and was, therefore, highly sought after during the busy construction season from late spring to early fall. As a result, clients secured a spot in the company's schedule by paying deposits. This left the company with excess cash during the off-season, which it invested each year in trading investments. The case centres on the transactions associated with these short-term trading investments.
The case provides an introduction to accounting for both stock-trading investments (purchase, sale, dividends, stock splits, and market valuations) and bond-trading investments (purchase and sale with accrued interest, interest payments, and market valuations using present value tables).
