Revenue Per Share

Amount of revenue over common shares outstanding. Answers the question, what's the ownership of sales to each share? Increasing revenue per share (RPS) over time is a good sign, because it means each share now has claim to more revenues.

For instance, if a company generates 500 million in revenues and has 100 million in common shares outstanding, the RPS is five. For each share outstanding, the company is generating five dollar in sales.


Revenue Per Share (Quarter) = Quarterly Revenues / Common Shares Outstanding
Revenue Per Share (TTM) = Trailing 12 Month Revenues / Average Common Shares Outstanding (Quarterly) from the trailing 12 months
