SHARE

EPS is the portion of a company’s profit allocated to each exceptional share of common stock. EPS serves as a pointer of a company’s profitability. EPS is generally considered to be the only most important variable in determining a share’s price.

Given the importance of identifying companies that will grow earnings per share at high rate, we then need to consider how to identify which companies will achieve high growth rates. One obvious way to identify high earnings per share growth companies is to find companies that have demonstrated such growth over the past 5 to 10 years. We can’t assume the past will always reflect the future, but logically stocks that have grown earnings per share strongly in the past are a good bet to continue to do so.

The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of financial markets. It is intended to chart the current and historical strength or weakness of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. The indicator should not be confused with relative strength.

The RSI is classified as a momentum oscillator, measuring the velocity and magnitude of directional price movements. Momentum is the rate of the rise or fall in price. The RSI computes momentum as the ratio of higher closes to lower closes: stocks which have had more or stronger positive changes have a higher RSI than stocks which have had more or stronger negative changes.

The RSI is most typically used on a 14-day timeframe, measured on a scale from 0 to 100, with high and low levels marked at 70 and 30, respectively. Shorter or longer timeframes are used for alternately shorter or longer outlooks. More extreme high and low levels—80 and 20, or 90 and 10—occur less frequently but indicate stronger momentum.
