Earnings per share (EPS) is the part of the company's overall profit on each share which is held by the company's shareholders. EPS is used by the investors to determine the most profitable stock for investing.
To take an investment decision you can compare the EPS values of the company over the last few years. You can also compare the EPS values between few companies to choose the most profitable stock.
The formula for calculating earnings per share (EPS) is as follows:
EPS = (net income – dividends) / common shares
Where net income is the company's total profit, dividends on preferred stocks is monthly, quarterly, and yearly obtained by shareholders, and common shares are the average outstanding shares currently held by the shareholders.
