By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Diversified REITs 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.

One Liberty Properties ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 15.14. Following is Lexington Realty Trust with a a P/E ratio of 21.73. PS Business Parks ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 22.19.
