Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 21.1x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 26.9x. It appears they believe that earnings will not grow as fast as they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: Total earnings for the Online Retail industry have declined over the last three years, with the industry now making a loss overall. But revenues have grown 25% 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.
