Business Glossary provided by
Earnings refer to the net benefits of a corporation's operation. Earnings are the main determinant of a company's share price, as they and the circumstances relating to them can indicate whether the business will be profitable and successful in the long run. Earnings are perhaps the single most studied number in a company's financial statements because they show a company's profitability compared to analyst estimates and company guidance.
