Feb 12, 2013 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Distributors 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.Pool ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 25.82. Following is Core-Mark with a a P/E ratio of 19.52. Genuine Parts ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 17.56.

Weyco Group follows with a a P/E ratio of 15.10, and Audiovox rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 7.36.
