apollocreed1: Share price is very volatile. Down about 10% last week and up 6% today
netcurtains: Little Beaker: I've been an online-education investor for 10 years. So I think I know a bit about it. Pearson have thrown the kitchen sink in here to get all the bad stuff out in one go. From THIS point the education industry can only go ONE WAY - UP... I'm not saying the share price will go up but I am saying the next set of results (for all educationalists) will almost certainly be miles better than this set. Governments world wide will not have another lockdown - France has already said as much. Whatever happens with Covid the lockdown has ended - this goes for education and exams too.
ch1ck: Ok Book point taken about the Zoom analogy but check out Chegg which is on Mad money tonight. Similar online learning platform and the shares are on a rip.Market share accounts for zip if your share price is plummeting and your loosing money. I would counter that we are not winning market share.The board must go
bookbroker: A halving of the share price since this time last year makes this company very vulnerable as its whole business model is more and more engineered to a future digital, distance learning format uninterrupted by inflexibility that Covid has thrown up, although most big tech companies are carrying on uninhibited to a large extent!
crystball: I am not sure that the share price has reached a low point just yet. I am holding off adding until it is clear that social distancing is not needed any more. This may take a long time. For example, in the Pearson Vue testing centres, the return to testing using social distancing will reduce testing capacity. To get the volume of tests done will require much longer opening hours and greater staff costs. So for now, I sit on the sidelines before considering adding to my holding.
investorschampion: Pearson has prudently paused its share buyback no mention was made of the dividend, with the forecast 20p for the year equating to a yield of 4.3% at the current share price. Pearson has had plenty of troubles of its own making over the past few years and the current crisis could conceivably present an opportunity for its online business. The shares currently languish at 17 year lows. Read more in our rolling update of coronavirus announcements for 23 March. hxxps://
crystball: Happy to see the share price continue to rise. So much for my theory about an overbought RSI!
crystball: Pleased to see the recent rise in share price. RSI now overbought. Maybe not a sensible time to buy more. Share buy backs are providing impetus. Will the shift to digital be a success? Time will tell.
utsushi: 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. GLTA.
crystball: PSON looking a bit shaky at the moment. I listened to the management giving a presentation and was particularly interested to listen to the Q and A session where various analysts gave quite a grilling asking searching questions. The way that Pearson do business is changing drastically with the move to digital. Management seem very confident that they will meet earnings forecasts and in the short term are confident that the dividend will be maintained. It is a tempting buy for the dividend, but catching the bottom of the share price dip may be difficult!
