Hi Bryan,
Use the EPS that exclude exceptional items

When plotting the PE chart, when using the previous financial year’s EPS, can I use the Net income per share in the income statement?

If yes, may I know if I should use the net income per share for basic or diluted?

Or am I supposed to use the EPS as per the excel I work out using the template?

Thank you.

Hi Adeline,

The EPS inside the income statement may not exclude exception items. My suggestion is to do the calculation yourself inside the financial template.

When using EPS, use the diluted figure as it accounts future dilutions.

The number of shares input into the excel template should be diluted outstanding shares.
