“Global investment manager Cohen & Steers, Inc. (CNS) was down for the quarter too. The company manages portfolios focused on realestate assets, as well as preferred securities and other financial products. Cohen & Steers recently reported a decrease in revenue largely related to the coronavirus pandemic. The report wasn’t exclusively negative, however, as it also showed a decrease in expenses and an increase in operating margin. Over the long term, we still believe the company has strong growth potential.”
