Is CBIZ under- or over-valued?

Valuing CBIZ stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CBIZ's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

CBIZ's P/E ratio

CBIZ's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, CBIZ shares trade at around 18x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

CBIZ's PEG ratio

CBIZ's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into CBIZ's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CBIZ's EBITDA

CBIZ's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$119.9 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a CBIZ's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting CBIZ shares

There are currently 460,730 CBIZ shares held short by investors – that's known as CBIZ's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% down from 542,396 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CBIZ shares can be evaluated.

CBIZ's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CBIZ's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CBIZ shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CBIZ shares traded daily (recently around 241219.89528796). CBIZ's SIR currently stands at 1.91. In other words for every 100,000 CBIZ shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1910 shares are currently held short.

However CBIZ's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CBIZ shares, or, against the total number of tradable CBIZ shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CBIZ's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CBIZ shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0099% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CBIZ shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against CBIZ.

CBIZ share dividends

We're not expecting CBIZ to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have CBIZ's shares ever split?

CBIZ's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 July 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CBIZ shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CBIZ shares which in turn could have impacted CBIZ's share price.

CBIZ share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CBIZ's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.85 up to $28.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CBZ.US volatility(beta: 0.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CBIZ's is 0.6106. This would suggest that CBIZ's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
