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.K12 ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 45.87. Following is Universal Technical Institute with a a P/E ratio of 26.74. New Oriental Education & Technology ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 22.07.
