|Top Hat , Canadian educational start up raises $22.5m to go after text book publisher Pearson, my view is that the recent rise in the share price could be due to the fact that we are in a strong bull market and AOT (any old thing) will go up, indeed even "a skunk could make a scent" in this market.
Pearson is valued still at £5.4bn, and I think given the shift from text books to digital medium this may still be too much, and the current rally could be a correction in a bear trend, with perhaps another profit warning on the way.
Price will determine if I am right or wrong-but if you are not sure it might be best to stay out.
|Well they creeping up slowly .|
|Good to see!|
|Big jump this morning.
wonder whats going on.|
|In demand again today.|
|So far the largest FTSE 100 riser .

|Schroeder double their holding picking up as many as they have?|
|i suspect they are bottom fishing|
|Schroders’ decision to spend around £250m doubling its stake in Pearson, a week after it was finally cutting its dividend after its fifth profit warning in four years, is a bit of a puzzle.
Schroders, which was already Pearson’s biggest shareholder, has increased its stake from 5.1% to 10.2% according to last Friday's RNS announcement. Is Schroders’ investment a vote of confidence in Pearson’s management and strategy, or an opportunistic move ahead of a possible takeover bid?
With over 10% Schroders is now in a position to play a role on any negotiations if there is a bid, and to put pressure on Pearson chief executive John Fallon to quit if there is not.|
|The BOD are just falling over themselves in the stampeded to buy at these
Remarked previously on the lack of insider buying on the decline and it continues atm.|
|Hopefully momentum into close|
|More of the same today.|
|Blueball - Not sure about a bounce. More of a crawl...|
|More of the same tomorrow possibly even slight acceleration|
|Let's see if we can get some momentum here|
|Broken 600p today the bounce is on.|
|Lowering outlook to negative.|
|What are Moody's saying?|
|Thanks to Moodys today we are heading up.|
|No this has definitely got potential!
Only Liberum think its value is 360. Other broker forecasts are from 550 to 960. Societe Generale says "Buy" and Beaufort Securities and Deutsche Bank say "Hold". JP Morgan Cazenove are "Neutral".
I've noticed that Liberum forecasts are often lower than other Brokers.
Of course if you're shorting then you will have a different view!|
|Dead cats bounce..|
|That will boost the price!|
