Current Industry PE: Investors are more optimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 16.0x which is higher than its 3-year average PE of 10.8x. It appears they are confident that earnings will grow faster in the future than they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Oil and Gas industry have declined 28% 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.

Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the U.S. Oil and Gas industry?

Oil and Gas Exploration and Production1.95%
Integrated Oil and Gas1.60%
Coal and Fuels1.33%
Oil and Gas Storage and Transportation1.19%
Oil and Gas Refining and Marketing-0.44%

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Integrated Oil and Gas industry even though it's trading below its 3-year average PE ratio of 26.6x. This is likely because analysts are expecting annual earnings growth of 2.9% and investors are willing to pay a premium for that growth. Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Coal and Fuels industry. Although, investor sentiment seems to have improved given its trading above its 3-year average of 7.5x.
