S&P Core Earnings(redirected from Standard and Poor's Core Earnings)
S&P Core Earnings
A standard used to determine a company's core earnings, which are the profits a company derives from its main business. Because there is no hard-and-fast rule of what constitutes a "main business" or the activities associated with it, S&P core earnings are useful for providing a basic standard to the measurement of core earnings. S&P core earnings are more conservative than some other measurements; among other things, it excludes revenue from pensions while including expenses related to them.
