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 15.1x. However, future earnings are expected to decline by 26% which could potentially cause the PE ratio to fall below its historical average.
Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Financials industry have declined 17% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 15% 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 Finnish Financials sector?
Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Insurance industry even though it's trading below its 3-year average PE ratio of 67.2x. This is likely because analysts are expecting annual earnings decline of 31%, which is less than its past year's earnings decline of 40% per year. Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Banks industry. Although, investor sentiment seems to have improved given its trading above its 3-year average of 10.7x.
Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Consumer Finance industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 114% over the next 5 years. Meanwhile, the Insurance industry is expected to see its earnings decline by 31% per year over the next few years.
