In 2012, Nam Corp., which is not a dealer in securities, realized taxable income of $160,000 from its business operations. Also, in 2012, Nam sustained a long-term capital loss of $24,000 from the sale of marketable securities. Nam did not realize any other capital gains or losses since it began operations.
