Why We Think CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE:CBZ) Could Be Worth Looking At

Simply Wall St

I've been keeping an eye on CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE:CBZ) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe CBZ has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, read the full report on CBIZ here.

Flawless balance sheet and good value

CBZ's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This indicates that CBZ has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. CBZ's has produced operating cash levels of 0.53x total debt over the past year, which implies that CBZ's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. CBZ's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of CBZ's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the commercial services industry, CBZ is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that CBZ is potentially underpriced.
