When it comes to choosing a stock EPS is the most important thing to look at before investing and in this post I’ll give you reasons why its important and I’m going to explain what EPS is.
Well for starters EPS stands for earnings per share.
One of the main reasons why EPS is so important, is because EPS will let you know whether or not a stock is worth investing in.
A higher EPS shows investors that a company is profitable. When a company is profitable it’s more likely that the investor will receive dividend payments from the company.
When the “earnings per share” increases 25 percent, it also reflects a higher demand from the company. This can be because of the rising popularity of the company or an increasing need for the companies products.
For example, have you ever heard of “Zoom” before the pandemic. In 2020 the eps for Zoom was calculated at 0.27, in 2021 it went all the way up to 2.91, that’s over 25 percent.
When the earnings per share for the company increases each quarter it represents future profitability for the company or consistent growth.
Before I purchase a stock I look at the estimated earnings per share and the actual earnings per share for each quarter. If a company passes its estimate earnings each quarter it shows The consistency of it’s performance.
Their are plenty of other reasons why EPS is important but these are the main reasons why you should pay attention to a company’s Earnings per share.
