For the following investments, identify whether they are:
1. Debt investments at amortized cost.
2. Debt investments at fair value.
3. Trading equity investments.
4. Non-trading equity investments.
Each case is independent of the other.
(a) A bond that will mature in 4 years was bought 1 month ago when the price dropped. As soon as the value increases, which is expected next month, it will be sold.
(b) 10% of the outstanding shares of Farm-Co was purchased. The company is planning on eventually getting a total of 30% of its outstanding shares.
(c) 10-year bonds were purchased this year. The bonds mature at the first of next year, and the company plans to sell the bonds if interest rates fall.

(e) A bond that matures in 10 years was purchased. The company is investing money set aside for an expansion project planned 10 years from now.
(f) Ordinary shares in a distributor are purchased to meet a regulatory requirement for doing business in the distributor’s region. The investment will be held indefinitely.
