Below are the three companies in the Water Utilities industry with the highest Enterprise Value (EV) to Sales ratios. EV/Sales gives investors an idea of how much it costs to buy the company's sales and the lower the ratio, the more undervalued the company is believed to be.

Purecycle ranks highest with a EV/Sales of 30.05. York Water is next with a EV/Sales of 9.85. Aqua America ranks third highest with a EV/Sales of 9.31.

Connecticut Water Service follows with a EV/Sales of 7.77, and American Water Works rounds out the top five with a EV/Sales of 6.51.
