Jason Corporation's statement of stockholders' equity reported net income of $988,000, foreign currency translation adjustments of $26,000, and cash dividends on preferred stock of $30,000 and on common stock of $65,000. Jason's comprehensive income for the period was ______.

A. $949,000
B. $962,000
C. $1,014,000
Correct Answer: C

Comprehensive income includes all changes in a company's equity during a period from sources other than owners. In this case, net income and foreign currency translation adjustments are included in comprehensive income for the period, which was $1,014,000 ($988,000 + $26,000). The foreign currency translation adjustment is a positive amount that is added to net income.

gill15 I was just about to say where the hell did you get MUUF from....its not even a word...

but now that I have posted this message I will never forget it...hilarious..
majesty YOUCANDOIT: this is OCI. CI = NI + OCI
Shaan23 Listen to Majesty. You guys are making this too complicated

CI = OCI + NI

OCU is composed of whats in the MUUF acronym above. His first unrealized gain/loss from hedges is incorrect though...its not just hedges but any derivative contract.
