Eliminating EPS in the Works

Accounting rule makers are working on a massive rewrite of how information is presented in financial statements.  The goal is to provide investors with more meaningful information that that would  eliminate the focus on the "bottom line" -- the earnings per share figure.  A report outlining the group's preliminary views is expected later this year; meanwhile, the Wall St. Journal posts a side-by-side comparison of a proposed and current Statement of Financial Position circulated by FASB.
