Earnings Per Share

By

Definition: Earnings Per Share is calculated by dividing a company's net revenues by the outstanding shares. This gives you a number you can use to compare the earnings of companies since it is unlikely any two companies will have the same number of shares outstanding.
Also Known As: EPS
Examples:
XYZ Company reported third quarter EPS of $1.25.
