Quarterly Earnings Growth

Quarterly Earnings Growth

The amount by which the earnings in a quarter exceed the earnings in a corresponding quarter from a previous year, expressed as a percentage. For example, if earnings in Q1 2009 were $1.5 million and were only $1 million in Q1 2008, quarterly earnings growth is 50%. Obviously, higher earnings are considered beneficial for a company, though there is no guarantee that they are sustainable.
