By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Casinos & Gaming 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.

MGM Resorts International ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 42.68. Following is Melco Crown Entertainment with a a P/E ratio of 35.94. Wynn Resorts ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 33.40.

Churchill Downs follows with a a P/E ratio of 31.85, and Boyd Gaming rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 19.95.
