There are ONLY 5 account names used for the investment securities discussed in Chapter 15. They are "Debt Investments - Trading", "Debt Investments - AFS", "Debt Investments - HTM", "Stock Investments", and "Equity Method Investments". So, please do not use any investment accounts titled "Short-term Investments", "Long-term Investments", "Investments in Securities", "Investments in Bonds", etc.
