Merger proposal[edit]

The concept of Diluted EPS stems directly from EPS. The two are not separable and it makes no sense to have two separate articles. --Ohconfucius ¡digame! 15:45, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Support I agree; Diluted is a subset of this article. Further both are likely to be relevant to readers. Ignorant people come to Wikipedia to be educated. The readers know nothing about the topic that is being discussed, we should presume. Therefore, (a) If they are not familiar with Diluted EPS then they are probably not familiar with EPS, and vice versa, and they would need to know about both to properly understand either one. And (b) understanding Diluted EPS would help one understand EPS, and vice versa. Reading about both together would have more impact on their knowledge then reading them separately. Reading about both gives a fully context, which is what an encyclopedia is all about. The whole, with the context, is bigger, more informative than the parts, so to speak. --Bruce Hall (talk) 06:07, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
