Calculation

In his book, The Little That Beat the Market, hedge fund manager Joel Greenblatt defines Earnings Yield as operating income divided by enterprise value.

Apple Incs Earnings Yield (Joel Greenblatt) for the fiscal year that ended in Sep. 2018 is calculated as

Earnings Yield (Joel Greenblatt)=EBIT/Enterprise Value
=76143/1121573.4426
=6.79 %

Apple Inc's Earnings Yield (Joel Greenblatt) for the quarter that ended in Sep. 2018 is calculated as

Earnings Yield (Joel Greenblatt)=EBIT (TTM)/Enterprise Value
=76143/1,121,573
=6.79 %

Apple Inc's EBIT for the trailing twelve months (TTM) ended in Sep. 2018 was 27764 (Dec. 2017 ) + 16960 (Mar. 2018 ) + 14130 (Jun. 2018 ) + 17289 (Sep. 2018 ) = $76,143 Mil.



Explanation

Joel Greenblatt defines the earnings yield using the above equation because it more accurately reflects the company's profitability relative to its stock price. Items like interest payment and tax etc. are not directly related to the company's operational profitability.

Enterprise Value instead of market cap (share price) is used in the calculation because it is the real price stock and bond investors together pay for the company.


Be Aware

Joel Greenblatt’s definition of earnings yield has the same problems the regular earnings yield does. It does not consider the growth of the company. It only looks at one-year’s business operation. For cyclical companies, the earnings yield is usually highest at the peak of the business cycle. But these earnings are rarely sustainable.

Forward Rate of Return (Yacktman) % based on Don Yacktman's definition is a better measure of the expected rate of return for a stock.
