    when it comes to calculating earnings per share, do you take existing earnings and add it to the next quarter's earnings per share?

    lets say EPS is currently 2.50

    and the earnings reports actual is earnings per share .80

    you add this new .80 to the 2.50 to get an EPS of 3.30 ?

    this would make sense but I've never based trades off that kind of calculation and I haven't seen a definite "yes this is how you calculate this" answer
