3 Stocks With Rising Profits To Consider Before Japan's Parliamentary Election On Sunday

The list consists of Japanese stocks with increasing profitability as indicated by rising diluted normalized earnings per share (EPS) for the past three consecutive years. EPS refers to the amount of profit allocated per outstanding share of common stock. Diluted normalized EPS differs from normalized EPS by taking convertible securities into consideration. Examples of convertible securities include options, warrens, and convertible preferred shares that could be exercised as well as lower net income. As a result, diluted normalized EPS tends to be both lower and more conservative than normalized EPS.
