Sun, 08 Dec 2019 Total Market Cap: AU$52.5b Total Earnings: AU$2.6b Total Revenue: AU$32.7b Total Market Cap vs Earnings and Revenue 0% 0% 0% Australian Utilities Sector Price to Earnings 3Y Average 8.4x 2020 2021 2022 Current Industry PE Investors are pessimistic on the Australian Utilities industry, indicating that they anticipate long term growth rates will be lower than they have historically. The 3-year average PS ratio of 1.3x is higher than the industry's current PS ratio of 1.1x. Past Earnings Growth Total earnings for the Utilities industry have declined over the last three years, with the industry now making a loss overall. Meanwhile revenues have remained mostly flat. This means that although sales have remained flat, either the cost of doing business or the level of investment back into businesses has increased, which has decreased profits. Industry Trends
