Earnings per share (EPS) is the portion of a company’s profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. EPS serves as an indicator of a company’s profitability. Earnings per share is generally considered to be the single
most important variable in determining a share’s price. It is also a major component used to calculate the price-to-earnings valuation ratio.
