Expert Answer

Step 1

1.

Feherty Inc. decided to account 10 bonds of Donald Company as held to maturity, which would be accounted at the amortized cost. Feherty Inc. decided to account 40 bonds of Donald Company as trading securities, which would be accounted at the FVOCI.

Feherty Inc. decided to purchase shares worth $25,000, which would be accounted at the FVOCI, as the Feherty Inc. holds no voting rights in the Watson Company and it cannot be accounted in the equity method.
