Jan 10, 2013 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Computer & Electronics Retail industry with the highest price to earnings (P/E) ratios.

Following is Rent-A-Center with a a P/E ratio of 10.73. Systemax ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 10.04.


GameStop follows with a a P/E ratio of 7.99, and hhgregg rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 3.47.
