By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Industrial 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.

Duke Realty ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 27.68. EastGroup Properties is next with a a P/E ratio of 48.91. First Industrial Realty Trust ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 62.64.

ProLogis follows with a a P/E ratio of 65.17, and DCT Industrial Trust rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 118.70.
