This excerpt taken from the FCTY 10-Q filed May 14, 2009.
Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities, securities are classified in three categories. Debt securities that management has a positive intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as “Held to Maturity” or “HTM” and are recorded at amortized cost. Debt and equity securities bought and held principally for the purpose of selling in the near term are classified as “Trading” securities and are measured at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses included in earnings. Debt and equity securities not classified as “Held to Maturity” or “Trading” with readily determinable fair values are classified as “Available for Sale” or “AFS” and are recorded at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses excluded from earnings and reported in other comprehensive income. The Company uses estimates from third parties in arriving at its fair values determinations.

 

Purchase premiums and discounts are recognized in interest income using the interest method over the terms of the securities. Declines in the fair value of investment securities below their cost that are deemed to be other-than-temporary are reflected in earnings as realized losses. In estimating other-than-temporary impairment losses, management considers (1) the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than cost, (2) the financial conditions and near-term prospects of the issuer, and (3) the intent and ability of the Company to retain its investment in the issuer for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in fair value. Gains and losses on the sale of securities are recorded on the trade date and are determined using the specific identification method.
