EPS – Earnings Per Share

EPS (Earnings Per Share): For public companies, Earnings Per Share is a measure that assesses how much revenue is earned in relation to its underlying equity capital structure. The higher the EPS, the better the general health of the business. Please note, it is not possible for Jazoodle to identify how many shares may have been issued by the company. For this reason, it has been assumed that the number of shares issued in a business is equal to the shareholders’ capital amounts. Thus, we assume shares are $1 or £1 per share.. This may not be accurate but, if used consistently over time, should provide a great way of understanding underlying profit performance, relative to the amount of funds that have been invested in the business from an equity perspective
