Investment term of the day: earnings per share (EPS)

dictionary By doctor-a via stock.xchng

Calculating the earnings per share (EPS) gives a measurement of the amount of a company’s profit that can be allocated to one share of its stock.

The result can serve as an indicator to a company’s profitability. The EPS is calculated by subtracting dividends on preferred stock from the net income and dividing this by the average outstanding shares.
