The company has a market cap of $1.1b with 54.9m shares outstanding and a float of 52.0m shares. Trading volume was 184,244 shares and has experienced an average volume of 194,481 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 CBIZ was 1.09 which ended on 31st of December 2018, which according to the previous close, that is a PE of 18.88. Based on 2 analyst estimates, the consensus EPS for the next quarter is 0.68. The trailing twelve month EPS is 1.09, which comes to a trailing twelve month PE of 18.88. Historically, the PE high was 26.80 and the PE low was 4.40. If the stock reached its PE low, that would represent a price of 4.80, which is a decrease of -76.69%.

Base on our calculations, the intrinsic value per share is 25.13, which means it might be undervalued and has a margin of safety of 18.10%
