The company has a market cap of $145.2m with 9.1m shares outstanding and a float of 7.1m shares. Trading volume was 82,932 shares and has experienced an average volume of 54,372 shares. Our calculation, using the current average volume and close price, leads me to believe that the liquidity is bad, highly speculative and an investor may want to avoid this stock.


The last annual reported EPS for Collectors Universe was 0.72 which ended on 30th of June 2018, which according to the previous close, that is a PE of 22.11.

Below was the last reported quarterly earnings per share:

06-30-2018:  0.11
03-31-2018:  0.17

The dividend per share is currently 0.70, which is a dividend yield of 4.40%. CLCT stock may not have sufficient earnings to cover future dividends and still be able to invest in and grow the business, therefore in the future the dividend may be reduced.

Base on our calculations, the intrinsic value per share is 19.77, which means it might be undervalued and has a margin of safety of 19.47%

The long-term trend of the EPS is a vital number as it helps understand the future potential of Collectors Universe; the EPS growth rate, as it is typically called, is usually expressed as a percentage, which at this time is hard to estimate, but revenue growth has been -4.90% over the last twelve months.
