The Reason I use simple EPS (not diluted EPS)

Diluted EPS is a performance metric used to gauge the quality of a company’s earnings per share (EPS) if all convertible securities were exercised. It is a conservative metric because it indicates somewhat of a worst-case scenario.

My preference is still on simple EPS because I just want to take the effective execution of convertible securities into account. This is just a matter of personal preference.
