|Massive drop between the open and close price of yesterday, nearly double that of the dividend correction today. Anyone know why this may be?|
|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.

|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.|
