By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Soft Drinks 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.

Coca-Cola Enterprises ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 14.46. Coca-Cola is next with a a P/E ratio of 19.75. Dr Pepper Snapple ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 22.56.

PepsiCo follows with a a P/E ratio of 22.90, and Coca-Cola Bottling Co Consolidated rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 29.51.
