PE Ratio


Total Market Cap: CA$59.9bTotal Earnings: -CA$1,588,253,839.29Total Revenue: CA$4.9b0%0%0%3 Year10 Year

Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 20.1x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 25.6x. It appears they believe that earnings will not grow as fast as they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Healthcare industry have deteriorated over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 53% 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 caused losses to expand.

Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Healthcare Services industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 72% over the next 5 years.
