Corporate profits are derived from the national income and product accounts and are expressed in several measures. Econoday's focus is on the most relevant measure for the total economy, after-tax profits.  Why Investors Care
Corporate profits are key in the determination of a company's stock price. When corporate profits are rising, then stock prices will likely rise; when profits are falling, then equity prices will probably decline as well. Corporate profits are one of the more volatile series on a yearly basis. Profits are the residual - the left over - from revenues after expenses are taken out - and taxes for after-tax corporate profits. While each component (revenues, expenses, and taxes) is not that volatile, the net is.
