Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Consumer Finance industry have grown 24% per year over the last three years, and revenues for these companies have grown 12% per year.

Which industries have driven the changes within the U.S. Consumer Finance industry?
Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Consumer Finance industry even though it's trading below its 3-year average PE ratio of 8.5x. However analysts are expecting annual earnings decline of 4.1%, which is lower than the prior year's growth of 122% per year. So the market might believe that analysts are underestimating future growth or they expect the Consumer Finance industry's earnings to deteriorate the least compared to other industries.
Forecasted Growth: Despite it being negative, analysts are least pessimistic on the Consumer Finance industry since they expect its earnings to decline by only 4.1% per year over the next 5 years, which isn't as bad as the other industries. However, this is a reversal from its past annual earnings growth rate of 122% per year.
