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 17.4x. It appears they believe that earnings will grow in-line with historical growth rates.
Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Semiconductor industry have declined 15% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 2.7% 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.
