By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Managed Health Care 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.

Triple-S Management ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 13.66. CIGNA is next with a a P/E ratio of 16.07. Aetna ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 16.15.
