A REIT and Fund Company With a Low Profile

From my perspective, the PE ratio of almost 26 is high, and with a price-per-share of $38.26 and an 80-cent dividend, the yield-to-price is a meager 2.09%. However, the company has no debt and as of the end of 2012 had around $226 million in total cash. Is a dividend increase in the offing? That could boost the stock price even higher.

Company Co-Founder, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO Martin Cohen, as of Jan. 30, 2013, owned over 10,564,000 shares and his partner Robert Steers owned more than 4,394,000 shares. In fact 58% of the outstanding shares of CNS are owned by insiders and "5%" owners! Now that's what I call a leadership team with "skin in the game" in a big way!

In this exciting season of earnings reports it's easy to overlook some of the lesser-known names like Cohen & Steers. In the world of smaller-cap companies it has a business model that's poised to generate growth for years to come. The company will hold a conference call to discuss its first-quarter financial results Thursday at 11 a.m. ET.
