Owner’s Equity Owner’s Equity Paper Introduction Earnings per share (EPS) include common stock, preferred stock, unexercised stock options, unexercised warrants, and other types of convertible debt. Companies “with a large amount of convertibles, warrants and stock options, diluted earnings per share are usually a more accurate measure of the company’s real earning power than earning per share’ (Investor Words, 2009). In 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) instituted a new rule regarding how companies must report quarterly earnings per share (EPS). This new rule required companies to report quarterly earnings per share in the form of either basic earnings per share or diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share (EPS) “is net income, minus any preferred stock dividends, divided by the weighted average number of common stock shares outstanding during the reporting period” (Maranjian, 2002). Diluted earnings per share (EPS) consider stock options, warrants, preferred stock, and convertible debt securities, and any other types of earnings which can be converted into common stock. 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
