Definition

Earnings Per Share (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.

Earnings Per Share without Non-Recurring Items is the amount of earnings without non-recurring items per outstanding share of the company’s stock. In calculating earnings per share without non-recurring items, the dividends of preferred stocks and non-recurring items need to subtracted from the total net income first.

Dollar Tree Inc Earnings per share without Non-Recurring Items (NRI) for the trailing twelve months (TTM) ended in Apr. 2016 was -0.46 (Jul. 2015 ) + 0.35 (Oct. 2015 ) + 1.02 (Jan. 2016 ) + 0.98 (Apr. 2016 ) = $1.89

Explanation

A non-recurring item refers to an entry that appears on a company's financial statements that is unlikely to happen again. It represents a one-time expense involving an unpredictable event and is not part of a firm's normal, day-to-day operations.


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.
