RED-WELLS are when legal records are set up in file folders and file pockets called "red-wells." Clients usually have several matters.

These sub-files are normally inserted into red-wells.
TREASURY STOCK is stock reacquired by the issuing company and available for retirement or resale. It is issued but not outstanding. It cannot be voted and it pays or accrues no dividends. It is not included in any of the ratios measuring values per common share. The presence of treasury stock/shares and a history of stock buyback are indicators that the firm has a sustainable competitive advantage.
