By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Steel 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.

Allegheny Tech ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 38.22. Following is Commercial Metal with a a P/E ratio of 25.96. Carpenter Tech ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 23.89.
