By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Integrated Telecommunication 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.

IDT ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 9.28. Verizon Communications is next with a a P/E ratio of 11.95. CenturyTel ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 15.83.

AT&T follows with a a P/E ratio of 17.70, and Atlantic Tele-Network rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 37.76.
