Basic earnings per share

• Basic EPS. Earnings per share (EPS) calculated without regard to any contingent securities.

• There are two kinds of Earning per Share (EPS): basic and diluted. Basic shares are fewer in number than diluted. For Basic EPS, net income is divided by the number of common shares outstanding. This usually produces a larger EPS number than when using a diluted number of shares. Be consistent in the kind of EPS you use. See also: Diluted Earnings Per Share.
