Best Penny Stocks For 2018

&l;p&g;The last time that Apple provided EPS guidance was in 2012. Starting with the first fiscal quarter in 2013 it has been giving revenue, gross margin, operating expenses, other income and tax rate guidance but not EPS. It also started giving ranges vs. single data points for revenue, gross margin and operating expenses. &l;em&g;(Note that I own Apple shares and have sold Put options).&l;/em&g;

The only component needed to determine what EPS or a range of EPS that the company is expecting is what share count to use. However, this can be projected so it is possible to calculate what EPS Apple is looking for. Additionally, the share count assumption has to be off by about 20 million for it to change the EPS estimate by a penny, so it doesn&a;rsquo;t impact the result by very much, if any, if it is off the mark.
