In the stock market and penny shares investment business the term EPS refers to the earnings per share, i.e. how much each share earns.
The EPS is the amount that a company allocates from its profits to the outstanding common shares. EPS or earning per share is used as a way of estimating how profitable a company really is.
However, the number of outstanding shares changes over time and so it makes more sense to take a weighted or mean average of the outstanding shares in the term that a report is made, as an indication of a company’s profitability.
