By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Data Processing & Outsourced Services 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.

Visa ranks highest with a EV/Sales of 12.54. Following is MasterCard with a EV/Sales of 11.36. Paychex ranks third highest with a EV/Sales of 7.68.

Jack Henry & Associates follows with a EV/Sales of 5.46, and Fiserv rounds out the top five with a EV/Sales of 5.25.
