Valuing Cohen-and-Steers stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cohen-and-Steers's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cohen-and-Steers's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Cohen-and-Steers shares trade at around 30x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Cohen-and-Steers's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.294. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Cohen-and-Steers's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 549,425 Cohen-and-Steers shares held short by investors – that's known as Cohen-and-Steers's "short interest". This figure is 31.3% up from 418,454 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cohen-and-Steers shares can be evaluated.
Cohen-and-Steers's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cohen-and-Steers shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cohen-and-Steers shares traded daily (recently around 136672.88557214). Cohen-and-Steers's SIR currently stands at 4.02. In other words for every 100,000 Cohen-and-Steers shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4020 shares are currently held short.
However Cohen-and-Steers's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cohen-and-Steers shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cohen-and-Steers shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cohen-and-Steers's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cohen-and-Steers shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0227% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cohen-and-Steers shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Cohen-and-Steers.

Dividend payout ratio: 99.25% of net profits
Recently Cohen-and-Steers has paid out, on average, around 99.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cohen-and-Steers shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cohen-and-Steers's case, that would currently equate to about $1.56 per share.
Cohen-and-Steers's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Cohen-and-Steers's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Cohen-and-Steers's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.3468 up to $78.82. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Cohen-and-Steers's is 1.3234. This would suggest that Cohen-and-Steers's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
