Accounting for Earnings Per Share

Earnings per share (EPS) is a popular and useful summary measure of a company’s profit performance. It tells you how much profit (or loss) each share of common stock has earned after adjustments for potential dilution from options, warrants, and convertible securities are factored in. This course covers the computation, reporting, presentation, and disclosures associated with earnings per share.
