Why does earnings & EPS shown on SSG not jive up with Etrade and other publications
Why does earnings & EPS and other data on SSG not jive up with that published on Etrade and else where?
The earnings (EPS) that are used in the tools and stock data service are ‘Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations’.
There are the earnings from the GAAP definition of continuing operations divided by the common shares outstanding adjusted for the assumed conversion of all potentially dilutive securities. Securities having a dilutive effect may include convertible debentures, warrants, options, and convertible preferred stock.
These earnings are traceable back to the company’s official filing (10-Q, 10-K, 20-F) on the SEC website at http://www.sec.gov
Other financial resources may present different variations on earnings.
