This paper explores the potential of neural networks to forecast earnings per share. The neural network would serve as a decision support system for finance managers, stock brokers and investment analysts and investors. Results of experiments with training/testing indicate that neural networks appear to be promising in forecasting EPS. Further investigations are necessary.
