Earnings per share (EPS) is one of the most widely quoted statistics in financial analysis. It came into great prominence in the US during the late 1950s and early 1960s due to the widespread use of the price earnings ratio (PE) as a yardstick for investment decisions. By the late 1960s, its popularity had switched across the Atlantic and for the purposes of consistency and comparability, it became important that an agreed method of computed EPS was established.
