Forecasted Materials industry annual growth in earnings
In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by SimplyWall St do have past financial data.
