    We extend two fundamental properties of positive linear time-invariant (LTI) systems to homogeneous cooperative systems. Specifically, we demonstrate that such systems are D-stable, meaning that global asymptotic stability is preserved under diagonal scaling. We also show that a delayed homogeneous cooperative system is globally asymptotically stable (GAS) for any non-negative delay if and only if the system is GAS for zero delay.
