Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Telecom industry have declined 8.8% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 2.6% per year. This means that although more sales are being generated, either the cost of doing business or the level of investment back into businesses has increased, which has decreased profits.
