Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the Kenyan Banks industry?

Diversified Banks-4.17%

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Diversified Banks industry even though it's trading below its 3-year average PE ratio of 6.1x. However analysts expect its future annual earnings growth (16%) to be largely in line with prior year's earnings growth, so the market might believe analysts are underestimating its future growth since investors are willing to pay a bigger premium today.
