Current Industry PE
    There are only 2 companies in the South African Internet and Direct Marketing Retail industry, so there is insufficient data to make an industry-wide assessment of both the PE and PS ratio.
Past Earnings Growth
  • The earnings for companies in the Internet and Direct Marketing Retail industry have declined 7.3% per year over the last three years.
  • Meanwhile revenues for these companies have grown 38% 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.
