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 39.0x. It appears they believe that earnings will grow in-line with historical growth rates.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the REITs industry have declined 2.2% 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. REITS industry?

Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Hotel and Resort REITs industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 84% over the next 5 years. Meanwhile, the Industrial REITs industry is expected to see its earnings growth to stay flat over the next few years.
