# Calculation of Retained Earnings For The Given Year

Question

1. True or False: Taylor Inc recently repurchased 5.6 million shares of common stock at a price of \$43 per share. One plausible reason for this is that the company feels that its stock is overvalued at the current market price.

2. The stockholders’ equity of Taylor Inc. at December 31, 2011, appears below:

 Common stock, \$16 par value, 200,000 shares authorized,120,000 shares issued and outstanding 2,640,000 Paid-in capital in excess of par value 1,000,000 Retained earnings 1,480,000

During 2012, the following transactions occurred:

June 15:     Declared a 10% common stock dividend when market value was \$30 per share
June 30:     Issued the stock dividend declared on June 15.
August 15:    Issued and sold 10,000 shares of common stock for \$20 a share.
December 10:     Declared and paid a cash dividend of \$3.00 per share.
December 31:     Recognized net income of \$ 752,000.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
