Big numbers for the profit and the shares but in the end, as we should expect by now, the EPS for Vodafone is a disaster - negative and relatively large. For every share, ordinary shareholders have lost 25 pence in 2002 and they lost 16 pence in 2001. The Carphone Warehouse's shareholders have made gains on average per share.
