DTS Inc is Among the Companies in the Electronic Components Industry With the Highest P/E Ratio (DTSI, BDC, DLB, LFUS, APH)

By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Electronic Components 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.

DTS Inc ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 86.60. Following is Belden with a a P/E ratio of 42.10. Dolby Laboratories ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 30.72.

Littelfuse follows with a a P/E ratio of 24.93, and Amphenol rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 24.77.
