Question

Barstow Corporation has a single class of common stock and a single class of cumulative preferred stock. The cumulative preferred stock requires the corporation to pay an annual dividend of $8,000 to preferred stockholders. On January 1, 2011, Barstow’s preferred dividends were one year in arrears, which means that Barstow declared neither preferred nor common dividends in 2010. During the three years (2011–2013), Barstow’s board of directors determined they would be able to pay $9,500, $17,000, and $20,000, respectively.

Required:
