Stockopedia explains OCF / EPS

A good way to evaluate quality is to compare operating cash flow per share to reported EPS. If it is greater than 1, this means that operating cashflow is greater than normalised EPS, suggesting that earnings are of a high quality because the company is generating more cash than is reported on the income statement.

It can also be less than 0, i.e. a company can show a positive earnings on the income statement while also bearing a negative cash flow.

This is measured on a TTM basis and uses diluted shares outstanding.
