Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the French Banks industry?

Diversified Banks1.99%
Regional Banks-0.20%

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Diversified Banks industry, which is trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 9.1x. However analysts are expecting annual earnings decline of 1.6%, which is lower than the prior year's growth of 6.6% per year. So the market might believe that analysts are underestimating future growth or they expect the Diversified Banks industry's earnings to deteriorate the least compared to other industries. Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Regional Banks industry, which is trading below its 3-year average of 10.0x.

Forecasted Growth: Despite it being negative, analysts are least pessimistic on the Diversified Banks industry since they expect its earnings to decline by only 1.6% per year over the next 5 years, which isn't as bad as the other industries. However, this is a reversal from its past annual earnings growth rate of 6.6% per year.
