Seeking value

I have been taking a close look at UK defence group Cohort (CHRT:390p). It’s a group I know well and one where I have successfully played the share price moves over the past three years, having initiated coverage at 214p ('Blue-sky buy', 6 Oct 2014), subsequently called a top 15 months later when I advised banking profits on two-thirds of your holdings at 415p ('On a roll', 15 Dec 2015), before turning a buyer again at 350p last autumn ('Riding small-cap bumper gains', 24 Oct 2016).
