Current Industry PE: Investors are more optimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 32.7x which is higher than its 3-year average PE of 26.9x. It appears they are confident that earnings will grow faster in the future than they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Beverage industry have declined 3.7% per year over the last three years, while revenues have remained mostly flat. This means that although sales have remained flat, either the cost of doing business or the level of investment back into businesses has increased, which has decreased profits.
