Current Industry PE: Investors are relatively neutral on the industry at the moment, considering it's trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 13.9x. It appears they believe that earnings will grow in-line with historical growth rates.
Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Materials industry have declined 6.4% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 2.3% 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.
Which industries have driven the changes within the Spanish Materials sector?
|Paper and Forestry Products||0.82%|
|Metals and Mining||-6.42%|
