Current Industry PE: There are only 3 profitable companies in this industry, so there is insufficient data to make an industry-wide assessment of PE.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Biotechs industry have deteriorated over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 19% 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.
