By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Specialized Consumer Services 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.

Service International ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 36.68. Following is Collectors Universe with a a P/E ratio of 21.23. Steiner Leisure ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 19.83.

Carriage Services follows with a a P/E ratio of 18.74, and Sotheby's rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 17.99.
