By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Industrial Conglomerates 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.

Roper Industries ranks highest with a EV/Sales of 5.63. Following is 3M with a EV/Sales of 3.74. Danaher ranks third highest with a EV/Sales of 3.27.

Raven Industries follows with a EV/Sales of 2.72, and General Electric rounds out the top five with a EV/Sales of 2.69.
