Treasury Stock Questions

What is treasury stock?

Treasury stock refers to stock that is bought back by the company. It is usually created when a company buys back its shares in the open market. This is normally done by stockholders because the buyback helps to lower the number of shares that are outstanding in the company. Read below where Experts have answered questions pertaining to treasury stock.

What effect would the purchase of treasury stock have on common stock?

In many cases, the common stock outstanding may be decreased by the purchase of treasury stock.

What would a treasury stock be reported as in the financial statement of a company?

The treasury stock may be reported as a deduction from the total paid in capital and retained earnings on a company’s financial statement.

Would the profit made from the sales of a treasury stock be reported on a company’s income statement?

The profit made by a company by selling treasury stock may not be reported on the income statement. This profit needs to be reported on the balance sheet of the company as additional paid in capital from the treasury stock. The reason behind this is that treasury stock sales are similar to the sale of new stocks in the market. As a result, the money that is earned from the sale will be counted as equity and not as an income.

Would the interest that is accumulated due to the purchase of treasury stock be considered as a deductible expense for a corporation?

If a loan was taken to purchase the stock, then the interest that the loan may accumulate may be considered as a deductible expense for the company.

Is it possible to resell treasury stock at a price that is lower than the par value?

In some situations, it may be possible to resell treasury stock at a cost that is lower than the par value.

Would a company’s stock price be affected if a company bought back its stock?

In most situations, if a company buys back its stock, it may not have any effect on the stock price. However, this purchase can result in an improvement in certain per share ratios like price/earnings. The cost of the shares will remain the same since the market risk will increase with the share amount.

Why do companies buy back their own stock?

Companies buy back their own stock in order to reward the stock holders with stock options. Sometimes, the call option holders may be affected by the payment of dividends. This purchase of company shares can increase the value of the remaining shares thereby benefiting these call option holders.

Would the purchase of a treasury stock by a company be considered a deductible expense for tax purposes?

Purchase of treasury stock by a company may not be considered as deductible expense for tax purposes since it is not a business expense.

There are various stock options available to people who want to purchase them as an investment. Treasury stock is one such option. It is important for you to be aware of the difference between the various stock options available and the pros and cons of each kind of stock. Knowledge about these will help you decide better on where you want to invest your money. You may ask an Expert if you have any doubts about treasury stock or need more information about them.

Recent Treasury Stock Questions

  • Hello. On a previous question, you said funds received from

    Hello. On a previous question, you said funds received from a $4,000 lawsuit settlement would be taxable on the net amount received (in this case, $1,800, which is $4,000 minus the $2,200 attorney fee). However, the financial software used to file the
    tax return states that misc. fees (such as legal fees) can only be deducted if they are more than 2% of AGI. In this case the $2,200 legal expense is not more than 2% of the filer's AGI. Is the financial software accurate about the deduction of the legal fees?
    Additionally, the creditor that paid the settlement never sent the debtor a 1099 form. Is the debtor somehow excused from reporting the settlement income if she did not receive the 1099 form?
  • "FOR MEGAN C. ONLY PLEASE"Hello Megan. Megan, as you can

    "FOR MEGAN C. or ANY Expert XXXX PLEASE" Hello Megan. Megan, as you can see in the following link, you already explained why China would not want to hurt The United States: http://www.justanswer.com/finance/81yuh-true-china-s-domestic-growth-stability-boosted.html But I was wondering about Russia. There has been some talk in the news that China and Russia might cyber attack the United States or cause an electromagnetic pulse in the United States that would send the United States back to The Stone Age. But doesn't Russia have reasons for NOT wanting to hurt the United States as well? For example, doesn't Russia have the United States to thank everytime someone in Russia can use a Mastercard, VISA, or American Express, and wouldn't it hurt Russia if they were unable to do this? Are there any other reasons? In fact, if anything like that would happen to the United States, wouldn't it also hurt Middle Eastern countries and OPEC as the United States would be unable to buy oil and gas from them? Thank you.

  • I'm planning for my kid's future and I've been reading more

    I'm planning for my kid's future and I've been reading more and more about the benefits of Roth IRA vs a plan 529 for their college education. I'm uncertain which is better and more flexible for withdrawing funds in the future. Currently I have a 529 plan for my 2 year old daughter, but for my newly born son I want to review other alternatives.
    What is your opinion on this? Assuming the uncertainty of the future and whether they kids may want to pursue a career that is more vocational (graphic design, photography, etc) which may not be considered an allowable expense under the 529 plan. Also, what would be the tax implication in this scenario when trying to withdraw funds in 18 years from now.
    Any idea will be helpful.
    Thank you.
