    ‘Shares in the small cap defence company get a further lift from a major contract award’

    ‘So with both profits and dividends set for significant growth, it’s hardly surprising that the shares have surged through the 225p resistance level to take Cohort into blue-sky territory. They are also making decent headway towards my 300p six-month target price.’

    Shares in the leather goods maker are lowly rated and heavily oversold too

    ‘The shares are massively oversold with the 14-day relative indicator absolutely only 20. The share price has also pulled back to a support level around 100p which acted as a floor in the first half of last year before it took off. So although my advice has yet to work out, I still feel there is decent recovery potential in the shares and continue to rate them a buy on a bid-offer spread of 100p to 104p. My target price of 200p may seem a long way off, but it also highlights the value on offer here.’

    Shares in a small-cap investment company look very undervalued given the solid asset backing

    'From my lens at least, this means that all the company's other investments, worth 117p a share, are being attributed a value of 47p in the share price!'

    Shares in a building products manufacturer offer an attractive entry point to play the UK economic recovery

    Despite the market rout the shares have held up pretty well, trading just above the listing price of 100p, even though the FTSE Aim index has slumped 10 per cent in the same three-month period.
