Debtsecurities include U.S. government securities, municipal securities, corporate bonds, convertibledebt, commercial paper, and all securitized debt instruments. Trade accounts receivable andloans receivable are not debt securities because they do not meet the definition of a security.An equity security is described as a security representing an ownership interest such ascommon, preferred, or other capital stock. It also includes rights to acquire or dispose of an own-ership interest at an agreed-upon or determinable price such as warrants, rights, and call optionsor put options. Convertible debt securities and redeemable preferred stocks are not treated asequity securities. 2. The variety in bond features along with the variability in interest rates permits investors to shopfor exactly the investment that satisfies their safety, yield, and marketability desires, and permitsissuers to create a debt instrument best suited to their needs. 3. Cost includes the total consideration to acquire the investment, including brokerage fees andother costs incidental to the purchase. 4. The three types of classification are:Held-to-maturity: Debt securities that the enterprise has the positive intent and ability to holdto maturity.Trading: Debt securities bought and held primarily for sale in the near term togenerate income on short-term price differences.Available-for-sale: Debt securities not classified as held-to-maturity or trading securities. 5. A debt security should be classified as held-to-maturity only if the company has both: (1) thepositive intent and (2) the ability to hold those securities to maturity. 6.

Since trading securities are held primarily for sale in the near term, anydiscount or premium is not amortized. 7. Trading and available-for-sale securities should be reported at fair value, whereas held-to-maturity securities should be reported at amortized cost. 8. $1,750,000 X 10% = $175,000; $175,000 ÷ 2 = $87,500. 9.
