Explanation of Solution

Common stock: These are the ordinary shares that a corporation issues to the investors in order to raise funds. In return, the investors receive a share of profit from the profits earned by the corporation in the form of dividend.

Stated value: It refers to an amount per share, which is assigned by the board of directors to no par value stock.

Preferred stock: The stock that provides a fixed amount of return (dividend) to its stockholder before paying dividends to common stockholders is referred as preferred stock.

Record the issuance of stated value common stock.

Table (1)

  • Cash is an asset account. The amount is increased, because cash is received upon stock issued. Therefore, debit Cash account with the amount of cash received.
  • Common Stock is a stockholders’ equity account and the amount is increased due to issuance of common stock. Therefore, credit Common Stock account with the value of common stock.
