Friday's Financial Winners and Losers

CBOT Holdings (BOT) rose on news that agricultural futures trading at the Chicago Board of Trade set an all-time volume record on Thursday.

Earlier in the week, the Chicago Board of Trade said its third-quarter trading volume rose 21% over a year ago to 199.3 million contracts. Shares were gaining $8.88, or 6.8%, to $140.03

Independence Holding (IHC - Get Report) slipped after the Stamford, Conn.-based life insurer said it's buying CA Marketing and Management Services, a health insurance marketing company. Financial terms were not disclosed, but Independence said it expected the deal to add to earnings. Shares were trading down 33 cents, or 1.6%, to $21.

Cohen & Steers (CNS - Get Report) gained after the New York-based asset manager announced a deal to buy the remaining 50% ownership stake in its Brussels based affiliate, Houlihan Rovers. Cohen & Steers will pay for the deal using a combination of cash and stock. The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter. Shares were trading up 74 cents, or 2.17%, to $34.90.

Federal Agricultural Mortgage (AGM - Get Report) lost ground after the Washington, D.C.-based credit services company said it would restate its financial statements for the past three years.
