The Legal Life of Jeremy Goldstein

He is also sought after just for legal advice concerning such matters. He particularly specializes in offering advice concerning the use of incentive-based programs like Earnings per Share. He considers EPS to be the very best incentive program. It is so influential that it is one of the biggest influencers of stock prices.

However, some critics say corporations who have EPS have an unfair advantage over smaller corporation who can’t get it. They say that it usually leads to favoritism with those corporations who use it the clear favorites. In fact, they are so opposed to it because it encourages an allows for illegal skewing of metric results to heighten share sales. They also say that EPS is only really effective for short-term profitability and doesn’t really help with long-term growth. They also say the payout initiatives of EPS are woefully unreliable because they are ever changing.

While Goldstein is mostly in favor of full EPS adoption, he highly recommends a compromise between those for and against EPS. He suggests having a committee that makes sure the short-term goals of the employee payouts meet the company’s long-term growth plans.
