Last year, Susan Young purchased 150 shares of Hadley Corporation. During the last twelve months, Susan received dividends totaling $2.00 per share. During the twelve month period, the company earned $8.00 per share. a. For the twelve month period, what is the total amount of dividends that Susan Young received? b. If a share of Hadley Corporation is selling for $50 per share, what is the dividend yield? c. What was the dividend payout during this twelve month period?
a. Total dividends = Dividends per share x number of shares $300 = $2.00 per share x 150 shares b. Dividend yield = Annual dividend amount / price per share .04 = $2.00/$50 4% c. Dividend payout = Annual dividend amount / Earnings per share .25 = $2.00/$8.00 25%
The Simon Company shipped merchandise to Bradford Corporation on December 27, 2019. Bradford Corp. received the shipment on January 2, 2020. December 31 is the fiscal year end for both companies. The merchandise was shipped f.o.b. shipping point. Explain the difference in accounting treatment of the merchandise if the shipment had instead been designated f.o.b. destination.
Inventory shipped f.o.b. shipping point is included in the inventory of the buyer when the merchandise is given to the delivery company. Bradford Corporation records the purchase in 2019 and includes the shipment in its ending inventory. Simon Company records the sale in 2019. Inventory shipped f.o.b. destination is included in the inventory of the seller until it reaches the buyer’s location. Simon Company would include the merchandise in its 2019 ending inventory and the sale/purchase would be recorded in 2020.
