By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Technology Distributors industry with the highest 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.

Cdw Corp/De ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 33.78. Eplus Inc is next with a a P/E ratio of 18.63. Insight Enterpri ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 15.80.

Avnet Inc follows with a a P/E ratio of 15.18, and Scansource Inc rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 12.97.
