  • Diluted EPS is a calculation used to gauge the quality of a company's earnings per share (EPS) if all convertible securities were exercised. Convertible securities are all outstanding convertible preferred shares, convertible debentures, stock options, and warrants. The diluted EPS will usually be lower than the simple or basic EPS but in the rare case that there are anti-dilutive securities it may be higher. In this case only the basic EPS is reported in the financial statements.
