Calculation

EPS (Diluted) is a rough measurement of the amount of a company's profit that can be allocated to one share of its stock. Diluted EPS takes into account all of the outstanding dilutive securities that could potentially be exercised (such as stock options and convertible preferred stock) and shows how such an action would impact earnings per share.

Bank of America Corporation's Diluted EPS for the fiscal year that ended in Dec. 2016 is calculated as

Diluted EPS (A: Dec. 2016 ) = (Net Income - Preferred Dividends) / Shares Outstanding (Diluted Average)
=(17906-1682)/11035.657
=1.47

Bank of America Corporation's Diluted EPS for the quarter that ended in Sep. 2017 is calculated as

Diluted EPS (Q: Sep. 2017 )=(Net Income - Preferred Dividends / Shares Outstanding (Diluted Average)
=(5587-465)/10725.482
=0.48

EPS (Diluted) for the trailing twelve months (TTM) ended in Sep. 2017 was 0.4 (Dec. 2016 ) + 0.41 (Mar. 2017 ) + 0.46 (Jun. 2017 ) + 0.48 (Sep. 2017 ) = $1.75

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 EPS without NRI, 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.
