Limitation Of EPS As A Financing-Decision

        Criterion 

                        EPS is one of the mostly widely used measures of the company’s performance in practice. As a result of this, in choosing between debt and equity in practice, sometimes too much attention is paid on EPS, which however, has serious limitations as a financing-decision criterion.  

                        The major short coming of the EPS as a financing-decision criterion is that it does not consider risk; it ignores variability about the expected value of EPS. The belief that investors would be just concerned with the expected EPS is not well founded. Investors in valuing the shares of the company consider both expected value and variability.
