Earnings Per Share (EPS) is a key indicator used by businesses and investors to gauge the profitability of a company on a pershare basis. It represents the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock, serving as a marker of the company’s financial health.
Historical Background
The concept of EPS has evolved with the stock market, becoming a fundamental measure for investors assessing the value of a company. Its importance has grown with the increase in stock market participation and the need for clear, comparable profitability metrics.
Calculation Formula
The EPS Growth rate is calculated using the formula:
\[ \text{EPSG} = \left( \frac{\text{CEPS}  \text{PEPS}}{\text{PEPS}} \right) \times 100 \]
where:
 \(\text{EPSG}\) is the EPS Growth (%),
 \(\text{CEPS}\) is the current EPS ($),
 \(\text{PEPS}\) is the past EPS ($).
Example Calculation
If the current EPS is $2.50 and the past EPS was $2.00, the EPS Growth can be calculated as:
\[ \text{EPSG} = \left( \frac{2.50  2.00}{2.00} \right) \times 100 = 25\% \]

EPS Growth is a vital metric for investors, indicating not only the profitability but also the growth potential of a company.
