Earnings per share (EPS) measures the net income earned for each share of common stock. It is calculated by first subtracting net income by preferred stock dividends then dividing the result by average common shares outstanding. If a company does not have any preferred stocks, then simply divide net income by the average common shares outstanding. On the other hand, the price-earnings ratio (P-E) is determined by dividing stock price per share by earnings per share. This ratio which is used most often by investors is a projective measure of profitability.
