By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Movies & Entertainment 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.

Viacom ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 7.47. Reading International is next with a a P/E ratio of 9.59. Time Warner ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 15.97.

Walt Disney follows with a a P/E ratio of 18.03, and Cinemark rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 20.11.
