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 19.5x. It appears they believe that earnings will grow in-line with historical growth rates.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Media industry have declined 12% 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.
