|Cash, Cash Equivalents, Short-Term and Long-Term Investments||
The Company’s investments consist of mutual funds held in the Company’s deferred compensation plan which are classified as trading securities, U.S. Treasury securities, corporate notes and bonds, asset-backed securities and U.S. Agency securities, which the Company has the intent and ability to hold to maturity and therefore, are classified as held-to-maturity. The following tables show the Company’s cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments by significant investment category as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 (in thousands):
The Company may sell certain of its investments prior to their stated maturities for strategic reasons including, but not limited to, anticipation of credit deterioration and duration management. The maturities of the Company’s long-term investments are less than two years. The Company considers declines in market value of marketable securities investment portfolio to be temporary in nature. The Company minimizes the potential risk of principal loss by investing in highly-rated securities and limiting the amount of credit exposure to any one issuer. Fair values were determined for each individual security in the investment portfolio.
When evaluating an investment for its current expected credit losses, the Company reviews factors such as historical experience with defaults, losses, credit ratings, term, market sector and macroeconomic trends, including current conditions and forecasts to the extent they are reasonable and supportable. As of September 30, 2020, the current expected credit losses were not material to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
