Revlon is Among the Companies in the Personal Products Industry With the Highest P/E Ratio (REV, IPAR, EL, NUS, MED)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Personal Products 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.

Revlon ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 40.84. Following is Inter Parfums with a a P/E ratio of 31.06. Estee Lauder ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 28.36.

Nu Skin Enterprises follows with a a P/E ratio of 22.93, and Medifast rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 21.96.
