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.

U.S. Bancorp Earnings per share without Non-Recurring Items (NRI) for the trailing twelve months (TTM) ended in Sep. 2014 was 0.76 (Dec. 2013 ) + 0.73 (Mar. 2014 ) + 0.78 (Jun. 2014 ) + 0.78 (Sep. 2014 ) = $3.05

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.
