Warfield Company is considering hedging the risk associated with (1) an available‐for‐sale (AFS) security portfolio and (2) an anticipated purchase of oil. Warfield's Board of Directors has limited experience in this area and has requested that you summarize the accounting and reporting implications if these items are hedged. The hedged risk in these two transactions can be either the risk associated with the cash flow or the risk associated with changes in the fair value. The two risks are discussed in separate parts of the case.
