Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Consumer Staples industry have declined 8.5% per year over the last three years, while 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.
