Definition

EPS (Basic) is a rough measurement of the amount of a company's profit that can be allocated to one share of its stock. Basic earnings per share (EPS) do not factor in the dilutive effects on convertible securities.

PetSmart Inc's Basic EPS for the fiscal year that ended in Jan. 2014 is calculated as

 Basic EPS (A: Jan. 2014 ) = (Net Income - Preferred Dividends) / Total Shares Outstanding = (419.52 - 0) / 103.203 = 4.06

PetSmart Inc's Basic EPS for the quarter that ended in Oct. 2014 is calculated as

 Basic EPS (Q: Oct. 2014 ) = (Net Income - Preferred Dividends) / Total Shares Outstanding = (92.156 - 0) / 99.356 = 0.93

PetSmart Inc EPS (Basic) for the trailing twelve months (TTM) ended in Oct. 2014 was 1.288 (Jan. 2014 ) + 1.05 (Apr. 2014 ) + 0.99 (Jul. 2014 ) + 0.93 (Oct. 2014 ) = \$4.26

Explanation

EPS is the single most important variable used by Wall Street in determining the earnings power of a company. But investors need to be aware that Earnings per Share can be easily manipulated by adjusting depreciation and amortization rate or non-recurring items. That's why GuruFocus lists Earnings per share without Non-Recurring Items, which better reflects the company's underlying performance.

Be Aware

Compared with Earnings per share, a companys cash flow is better indicator of the companys earnings power.

If a companys earnings per share is less than cash flow per share over long term, investors need to be cautious and find out why.
