Working Notes:

1. (Total income before tax = 1,214,000 + 10,400 +(-190,000) + (-35,300) + 128,200 = 1,127,300)

2. (At 40% on extraordinary gain = $128,200 * 40% = $51,280)

3. (At 38% on other items = $999,100 * 38% = 379,658)

4. (Profit after tax = $1,127300 - $430,938 = $696,362)

5. Earning per stock = {eq}\frac{696,362}{149100} {/eq} = $4.67
