On December 31, 2007, when ABC's account "Investment in Common Stock of XYZ Corporation" had a carrying value of $5 per share, ABC distributed these shares to its stockholders as a dividend. ABC originally paid $8 for each share. XYZ has 3,000,000 shares issued and outstanding, which are traded on a national stock exchange. The quoted market price for a XYZ share was $7 on the declaration date and $9 on the distribution date.
What would be the reduction in ABC's stockholders' equity as a result of the above transactions?
At declaration date, the following is recorded
Debit: Retained earnings ($5x900000)

Four months later ABC declared a $.50 per share cash dividend. As a result of the dividends declared during the year, retained earnings decreased by:
Stock dividend 350000*10% = 35000 => small stock dividend hence, retained earnings is debited for the market value of the stock = 35000x30=1050000
Cash dividends = (350,000+35000)*0.50=192,500
Total debit to RE=192,500+1050000=1242500
