During an economic slowdown, revenues might fall, but most companies try hard to keep EPS up by reducing costs. Shareholders can accept revenue declines during a slump, but they don’t like to see a drop in EPS.

Growth in earnings per share is everything. The expected future growth in earnings per share (“EPS”) is an incredibly important factor in identifying an under-valued stock. The impact of earnings growth is exponential. Over the long run, the price of a stock will generally go up in lock step with its earnings (assuming the P/E ratio is constant). Therefore stocks with higher earnings growth should offer the highest capital gains. And doubling the growth more than doubles the capital gain, due to the compounding effect.

All things being equal, stocks with higher earnings-per-share growth rates are generally more desirable than those with slower earnings-per-share growth rates. One of the important differences between earnings-per-share growth rates and net-income growth rates is that the former reflects the dilution that occurs from new stock issuance, the exercise of employee stock options, warrants, convertible securities, and share repurchases.
