The earnings per share can be defined as the total profits a company has made within a period divided by its number of outstanding shares. It is one of the most important metrics used in valuing shares of quoted companies and indicates how well a company is performing compared to its competitors.

Every weekend, Nairametrics will publish the earnings per share of companies quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. The earnings per share will be based on the last trailing twelve months of the companies results.

Trailing twelve months means the last four quarters that the company has released a result. If a company for example, has released its 2017 half-year result for the period ended June 30, 2017, its TTM earnings per share will be its 2017 Q2, 2017 Q1, 2016 Q4 and 2016 Q3 results respectively.

Earnings per share (TTM), PE Ratio

Note: 0.00 suggest the company reported a trailing twelve months loss in the period under review and as such no earnings per share or price earnings ration can’t be computed. Closing price is as at the last Friday of the week.

  1. Good day , Its always a pleasure to read up tour articles. May God bless you richly.

    I’ll like you to confirm the eps and pe ratio for FCMB group. This is because it is a sharp deviation from what I found in financial times. com which I also believe is a credible site.

    I’ll appreciate it if you verify this figures on FCMB.

    • Hello Femi, the EPS definition here is based on trailing twelve months and not the fiscal year of the company as maybe found on the company’s annual report or on other websites. We defined TTM in the article. This report is also obtained from data from the NSE.
