Current Industry PE: Investors are relatively neutral on the industry at the moment, considering it's trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 19.2x. However, future earnings are expected to decline by 3.2% which could potentially cause the PE ratio to fall below its historical average.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Media industry have grown 24% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have declined 4.1% per year. This means that less sales are being generated overall, but since cost of doing business is lower, profits have been increasing.

Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the Italian Media industry?


Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Broadcasting industry which is trading above its 3-year average PE ratio of 22.6x. However analysts are expecting annual earnings decline of 5.7%, which is lower than the prior year's growth of 136% per year. So the market might believe that analysts are underestimating future growth or they expect the Broadcasting industry's earnings to deteriorate the least compared to other industries. Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Publishing industry, which is trading below its 3-year average of 18.0x.

Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Advertising industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 29% over the next 5 years. However this is lower than its past earnings growth rate of 279% per year. Meanwhile, the Publishing industry is expected to see its earnings decline by 14% per year over the next few years.
