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 19.1x. It appears they believe that earnings will grow in-line with historical growth rates.
Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Information Technology industry have declined 8.2% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 4.2% per year. This means that although more sales are being generated, either the cost of doing business or the level of investment back into businesses has increased, which has decreased profits.

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Software industry, which is trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 23.8x.

Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Tech Hardware industry, which is trading below its 3-year average of 18.7x.
Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Communications industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 76% over the next 5 years.
