Talk of not doing EXAMS again this year. I guess that is pretty bad for PSON

The latest round of quarterly updates from Investor’s Champion’s income stocks suggests that they've hunkered down and are well positioned to benefit when the economy starts to recover. #igg #mndi #mony #pson

I say it slightly tongue in cheek, but remarkable that new CEO was assigned job of picking himself, and was also on remuneration committee, and thus managed to negotiate a vast salary in the process, albeit incentivised!

"no other xxx wanted the job" - that is extremely unlikely - there are millions either unemployed or on low wages all over the world

Pearson shareholders criticise 7.4m payout to new CEO: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.ft.com/content/3b93575a-24e7-48a2-8c63-a9da8bd51cc7 You can't make this circus up can you? The new CEO's previous job at the company was interviewing candidates for the CEO job...

Andy Bird (the new CEO) started his career working with Timmy Mallett, so he should slot in very nicely with the current board of directors. Hopefully he can give them a "whack on the head" at least to try give them a giddy up.

Fallon should be handing back every penny of his salary, he has created zero shareholder value, absolutely useless. If he had kept the FT., it would probably be worth more than the current value of the whole company. He has destroyed this company, there are far more nimble players in the digital education sector. Inept and incompetent, the board should have forced him out years ago.

apollocreed1: A pretty ordinary Java developer can get £750 a day in London that equates to pretty much £200k per annum. Surely the boss should get paid more than an average contract IT office worker? Https://www.jobserve.com/gb/en/JobSearch.aspx?shid=8FE9B78C307752B21585

I always vote against any director earning more than £200k pa - my votes aren't worth much but at least I've shown my disapproval. Nobody's skills and labour are worth more than that.

bookbroker: If you're so upset my advice would be to sell your shares and buy a stock you like (Bloomsbury or relx). My view is give the new guy a year to prove himself. Who knows I could be sitting on a share price of over £15 this time next year. I'm very relaxed about the recent fall as I know is based on fluff and nonsense (I was not here for the longer term fall). shorting is a game of very short run memories and often it occurs just before one hell of a bull run as it artificially deflates a price lower than it normally would go so once done and dusted one tends to get big bounce .

They are paying this man way too much, is this the best Pearson can do, I think not, this company needs no more controversy.

Educational publisher Pearson has turned to former Disney executive Andy Bird for a leader to guide the company through its move to become a digital-first business. Mr Bird, who has been on Pearson’s board since May, will take up the position later in the autumn. He spent several years as the chairman of Walt Disney International, turning the media giant into a digital-first business – an echo of the ambitions that Pearson has for itself. Bird spent 14 years working for The Walt Disney Company (2004–2018), during which time he worked to enhance the brand's local presence in countries around the world, for example by establishing the Disney English in China teaching the English language to Chinese families through immersive learning experiences.

apollecreed1, bookbroker: I think the situation is bad bosses (or prime ministers) are the product of bad shareholders or voters. We tend to get what we deserve....so I tend to forget all that 'lets blame the bosses or unions' mentality - generally speaking eton produces rubbish bosses, dell boys good. Putting that to one side, Education is BIG in a recession because there is not much else the young can USEFULLY be doing at this point (or the unemployed).

Why so many negative comments today? The share price is drifting downwards but I see no negative news. My only worry is that on the Short Tracker website you can see that Pearson is the 3rd most shorted stock on the UK market.

...still its back to school GLOBALLY - one would have thought the picture going forward would be a relatively quick recovery from covid for the likes of Pearson.... I cant see many kids taking a gap year this year as no where to go and no jobs to do - so one assumes Universities will be quite full of UK students making up for most of the loss of overseas numbers..... And the study from HOME model suits Pearson too. Theoretically Pearson is a no-brainer BUY .... But who knows,

Year after year they disappoint the market, the sooner a buyer appears to put shareholders out of their misery the better, but is there any real value left.

Probably a soap opera, or maybe a comedy. This company should be thriving, but it has sold off its best assets to be left with a white elephant. Shocking mismanagement, online learning should be booming, but the people running this company would struggle to run a food bank!
