Note 2. Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the daily weighted average number of shares of our common stock outstanding for the period, excluding shares of unvested restricted stock and contingently-issuable shares. Unvested restricted stock is included in shares of common stock outstanding on our Condensed Balance Sheets.

Diluted earnings per share is computed using the treasury stock method. The denominator used in calculating diluted earnings per share includes shares of unvested restricted stock, but excludes contingently-issuable shares under performance-based award agreements because the performance target has not yet been deemed achieved.

The following table provides a reconciliation of the number of shares of common stock used in computing basic and diluted earnings per share:
