Shares in Kingdom Holding gain
2 percent after announcing that it sold its interest in the Fairmont Hotel and Raffles Suites & Residences in Manila for $58.1 million.
(In the previous example, the holding gain
is the $40 increase in the inventory's wholesale value above the original cost of $100, while the marketing profit is the $110 difference between the $250 retail price and the current wholesale value of $140.) Although both sources of income enrich stockholders, entirely different processes created them, so it follows that detailed information about each is more useful than FIFO-based information that combines them.
Note that the TS holding gain
of $15,000 is reported as a component of income and that these securities are reported on the balance sheet at their fair value of $465,000 at the end of the first quarter of operations.
Sales $300,000 Cost of sales $100,000 Income before taxes $200,000 Income taxes $80,000 Net income $120,000 Cash $220,000 Land $50,000 Equity $270,000 If reasonable expectations are that the price of land will remain stable in the future, and that sales of two parcels per year for a total of $150,000 can be expected to continue, it is necessary to isolate the realized holding gain
included in income and remove it from the earnings base:
The primary difference between accounting for investments held for trading and accounting for available-for-sale investments is that any holding gain
or loss to adjust the investment to market value is shown on the income statement for trading shares, while available-for-sale stocks' accumulated holding gains
or losses are reported as a separate component of shareholders' equity on the balance sheet.
The cost-to-market account is adjusted each period, and the signed amount of the period-to-period change in the account's balance represents the period's net unrealized holding gain
These taxpayers should be advised to take advantage of the deemed sale and repurchase election for those investments having a holding gain
on January 2, 2002.
In other cases, the revaluation adjustment is considered a holding gain
and could be entered directly into a separate component of equity-like certain foreign currency translation adjustments-or flow through earnings or comprehensive income into equity.
This means that, for available-for-sale securities, the net holding gain
or loss would be included as a component of equity on a net-of-tax basis.
