I'm new to both sites (and investing) and I noticed that EPS on Google Finance is different than that of Yahoo's EPS metric (e.g. GE's EPS as of March 18 is Google: 1.01, Yahoo (Diluted EPS): .89 ). Yahoo's EPS on the quote summary seems to always match Diluted EPS on its Stats page.

How is Google Finance's EPS metric calculated and is this the same as the Basic EPS? If it's not the Basic EPS, how do I calculate Basic EPS with data from Yahoo or Google Finance? (I know the formula, I can't find the right numbers to plug in)

  • The P/E ratios don't match either. – Ben Miller - Remember Monica Mar 18 '17 at 20:55
  • It looks like Yahoo uses reported GAAP number while Google uses the adjusted earnings (typically adjusted number excludes one-off cash flow). – SMeznaric Mar 19 '17 at 13:13
