Question: P Company owns 80 of S Company s common stock cost

P Company owns 80% of S Company’s common stock (cost $650,000) and 20% of its preferred stock (cost $50,000). Both interests were acquired on January 1, 2009. On the date of purchase, S Company’s stockholders’ equity consisted of the following accounts.
Preferred stock......... $200,000
Common stock......... 500,000
Retained earnings......... 160,000
The preferred stock is $25 par value, 9% cumulative, and nonparticipating. The call price is $27 per share. Dividends have been declared in all years except for 2010.
An examination of S Company’s assets and liabilities revealed that their book values were equal to fair values except for the inventory and equipment.

S Company sells inventory to P Company at 25% above cost. During 2010 and 2011, such sales amounted to $350,000 and $390,000, respectively. The 2010 and 2011 ending inventories of P Company included goods purchased from S Company for $77,500 and $54,000, respectively. The companies file consolidated tax returns.
