51job Inc is Among the Companies in the Human Resource & Employment Services Industry With the Lowest P/E Ratio (JOBS, TBI, KFY, KFRC, MAN)

By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Human Resource & Employment Services industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

51job Inc ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 3.96. Following is TrueBlue with a a P/E ratio of 10.56. Korn/Ferry International ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 10.57.

Kforce follows with a a P/E ratio of 13.86, and Manpower rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 13.86.
