Have you ever wondered about investing in shares of a bank? And have you ever wondered how much you are earning from your shares? Well, your earnings per share (EPS) are one of the major components that indicate the profit a bank is making.

If you have invested in shares of a bank, you’ve heard about dividends, right? Dividends are the return on your investment (ROI) in shares. As an investor, you should always look at the EPS of the bank as higher EPS means a higher dividend!
