NOTE 4 – INVESTMENTS IN MARKETABLE SECURITIES

 

Marketable securities are classified as available-for-sale and are presented in the balance sheet at fair value.

 

Per Accounting Standards Codification 820 “Fair Value Measurement”, fair values defined establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 does not require any new fair value measurements.

 

ASC 820 establishes a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value. This hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels as follows:

 

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

Level 2: Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data

 

The Company has classified these marketable securities at level 1 with a fair value of $29,442 as of December 31, 2014.

 

In June 2014, the Company opened an investment and trading account with Interactive Brokers with a capital of $80,000 to invest in various stocks to receive dividends while hedging them by trading options to receive trading profits managed by its Chief Executive Office I. Andrew Weeraratne.  Of the $80,000 initial capital, $ 44,362 remains in cash as of December 31, 2014, and has not been actively invested in stock.  The total realized gains for the period ending December 31, 2014 from trading activities was $494.  The total unrealized loss as of December 31, 2014 is $2,852.  The investment and trading account is recorded at fair market value adjusting the account both by realized and unrealized gain and losses, as required by generally accepted accounting principles, at a balance of $29,442 as of December 31, 2014.
