By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Household Products industry with the highest 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.

Wd-40 Co ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 40.62. Following is Church & Dwight with a a P/E ratio of 35.40. Clorox Co ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 28.42.
