Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 9.5x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 25.2x. It appears they believe that earnings will not grow as fast as they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Consumer Retailing industry have declined 35% 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.
