Jeremy Goldstein is an NYC lawyer who offers insights on Earnings per Share (EPS)and other various incentive-structured programs in contrast to performance-based programs.

For shareholders the bias within the numbers spearhead them to drive share sales that holds the connotation of being misled or even illegal.
