By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Communications Equipment 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.

InterDigital ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 10.42. Following is Bel Fuse with a a P/E ratio of 12.43. Cisco Systems ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 15.89.

Juniper Networks follows with a a P/E ratio of 17.43, and Arris Group rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 18.84.
