Topic: Earnings Per Share

NOTE: There is no grace period in case of GDB


Objective of GDB

The basic objective of this discussion is to enable students to learn Earnings Per Share.

Learning Outcomes

After attempting this GDB students will be able to apply the concept of Earnings Per Share in its true meaning in practical life.


In today’s modern era, management of organizations operating in different sectors is very much concerned about measuring performance of their organizations and to analyze multiple factors which contribute towards successful performance. Performance measurement not only enables management to collect data that they need to improve performance but it also helps the stakeholders to judge the value that organizations create in their minds about their products and services.  Earnings per share (EPS) is considered as an important tool for performance measurement but there are also many critics that are of the view that, “EPS cannot be used alone as a measure of performance”. You are required to give at least three logical arguments to support your stance; also mention other measures which can be used as appropriate performance indicators in combination with EPS.
