Top 5 Companies in the Restaurants Industry With the Highest P/E Ratio (TAST, WEN, CBOU, CMG, SBUX)

Jan 10, 2013 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Restaurants 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.Carrols Restaurant Group ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 77.13. Following is Wendy's/Arby's Group with a a P/E ratio of 39.92. Caribou Coffee ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 39.15.

Chipotle Mexican Grill follows with a a P/E ratio of 33.73, and Starbucks rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 30.52.

SmarTrend recommended that subscribers consider buying shares of Starbucks on November 2nd, 2012 as our technology indicated a new Uptrend was in progress when shares hit $51.17. Since that recommendation, shares of Starbucks have risen 8.7%. We continue to monitor Starbucks for any potential shift so investors can protect gains and will alert SmarTrend subscribers immediately.
