Electronic Equipment and Components
Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Software industry, which is trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 45.5x. However analysts expect its future annual earnings growth (19%) to be largely in line with prior year's earnings growth, so the market might believe analysts are underestimating its future growth since investors are willing to pay a bigger premium today. Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Tech Hardware industry, which is trading below its 3-year average of 17.4x.
Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Software industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 19% over the next 5 years. This is roughly in line with its past earnings growth rate. Meanwhile, the Tech Hardware industry is expected to see its earnings growth to stay flat over the next few years.
