2. The common stock represents the ownershoip interest. It is a share of the whole ownership capital of the company. On a company’s balance sheet the amount which is contributed by the owners is termed as Share Capital. The common stock is the share issued to the public for subscription. This subscription allows a person to become owner of the company for the proportion of the interest which is represented by the stock. The Shareholder’s Equity in the balance sheet represents the whole amount belongng to the owners and therefore the Common Stock is represented as Shareholder’s Equity.
3. Treasury Stock is also known as the reaquired stock of the company. The company can buy back its own shares from the shareholders. When the stocks are bought back by the company they reduce the number of shares issued to the public or shareholders and thereby the liability of the company towards the shareholders also reduced effectively. Treasury Stock is not classified as asset because it is part of the share capital which is paid off and can be reissued again when required. An asset is an item which holds value for the company and helps in the revenue generation process. Treasury Stock represents the portion of the liability paid off.
4. Accumulated other comprehensive loss represents the unrealized loss of the line items which are represented in the income statement as other comprehensive income.
