EPS growth in vital in predicting in how a company's stock may perform. Some stocks seems to have high EPS while others don't at all.
Interest rates can affect EPS. EPS stands for earning per share. It is calculates as Net Profit/No. of Shares Outstanding. The term earnings per share represents the portion of a company’s earnings, net of taxes and preferred stock dividends, that is allocated to each share of common stock.
Generally, companies with positive EPS are more highly valued than companies with negative EPS, and a novice investor should just stick to companies with long track records of profit making. But that is not to say that companies with negative EPS should be avoided. These stocks are extremely attractive to contrarian/special events/distressed securities investors.
