Earnings Per Share (EPS)*
The amount of net income attributed to each share of stock; it is determined by dividing net income by the number of outstanding shares in a given period. In calculating EPS, the company often uses a weighted average of shares outstanding over the reporting term. The one-year (historical) EPS growth rate is calculated as the percentage change in earnings per share. The prospective EPS growth rate is calculated as the percentage change in this year’s earnings and the consensus forecast earnings for next year.
