By Amy Schwartz

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 10.47. Cinemark is next with a a P/E ratio of 16.80. Time Warner ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 16.84.

Regal Entertainment Group follows with a a P/E ratio of 18.20, and Walt Disney rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 18.91.
