What does Earnings Yield % Last Yr mean?
As defined in the Little Book that Beats the Market, the earnings yield compares the profit generated with the market valuation of the company. It is defined as operating profit divided by enterprise value. In a case where the company has a negative Entreprise Value (i.e. it's trading for less than net cash), we use 1 as the Entreprise Value so that the Earnings Yield becomes the Operating Income.
