FASB Proposals on OCI, Investment Cos, Investment Properties
FASB released two proposals for public comment last week relating to investment companies and investment properties, respectively, and voted to release a third proposal - likely in early November - to defer the effective date of certain provisions only, from Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-5 on Comprehensive Income.

Watch FASB's website, www.fasb.org , for the posting of the proposal relating to ASU 2011-5/OCI; the comment period could be 15 days (or more); a minimum 15-day comment period was agreed to at last week's FASB board meeting.
