Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 4.9x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 9.1x. It appears they believe that earnings will not grow as fast as they have historically.
Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Auto industry have grown 12% per year over the last three years, and revenues for these companies have grown 2.6% per year. This means that more sales are being generated by these companies overall, and subsequently their profits are increasing too.
Which industries have driven the changes within the German Auto industry?
Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Automobile Manufacturers industry even though it's trading below its 3-year average PE ratio of 9.1x. However analysts are expecting annual earnings growth of 4.2%, which is lower than the prior year's growth of 310% per year. So the market might believe that analysts are underestimating future growth.
Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Automobile Manufacturers industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 4.2% over the next 5 years.
