thewheeliedealer: Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast last week and PSON was one of Stocks we discussed. In addition, we have a Special Guest Star in the form of Tim Rogers, who was the former CEO at ABDP. He gives loads of insights into the likely future for the Car Market and also gives some background etc. around ABDP. As always we also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research and a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing and Portfolio Management. Sadly we didn’t get time to chat about Tim’s classic motorcycle collection !! Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast, Google+ or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 45) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, with the intent being that it is like you are eavesdropping on us having a chat down the local boozer (we can dream !!). Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://
mj19: Pearson, a publishing and education company, posted full-year adjusted EPS declined 50% over year to 28.7 pence on revenue of 3.40 billion pounds, down 12%. The company proposed a final dividend of 19.5 pence per share, taking full-year dividend to 19.5 pence per share, unchanged from the prior year.
pfoleypp: Netcurtains, I think its bigger than that, i.e 2 or 3 potential predators to battle it out in a bidding war which will drive up the share price well beyond £20.
netcurtains: So Pfoleypp you suggest that BlackRock are buying shares in the company for a possible takeover? Interesting. Going forward more and more education will be online and PSON is the "BIG" online education company.
spob: ‘Short squeeze’ spreads as day traders hunt next GameStop White House is ‘monitoring the situation’ after surge in targeted stocks on both sides of the Atlantic European companies targeted by Reddit traders include Poland’s CD Projekt, maker of the Witcher series of video games, the pharmaceuticals group Evotec and the battery maker Varta Robert Smith, Laurence Fletcher and Madison Darbyshire in London and Eric Platt in New York Https:// Financial Times 27 January 2021 A “short squeeze” that started on Wall Street swept across the globe on Wednesday, triggering another day of frenetic moves in the share prices of companies with large bets levied against them. The White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration was “monitoring the situation” as shares of companies including GameStop, the hard-hit cinema owner AMC and BlackBerry surged in a volatile day of trading. The dramatic moves highlight the growing influence of retail traders, who have organised on the message board site Reddit. The group has focused on pushing up stocks that are the subject of large short bets by hedge funds. Their success in rallying the stock price of GameStop has vindicated a group now targeting companies on both sides of the Atlantic. Stocks such as US home goods retailer Bed Bath & Beyond, Finnish telecoms group Nokia, German pharmaceuticals company Evotec, former Financial Times owner Pearson and Polish games developer CD Projekt rose sharply in intraday trading. Shares in AMC, which earlier this week clinched a rescue financing, rose 301 per cent on Wednesday, while the retailer Express more than tripled in value. GameStop, which has been at the centre of the retail trading bonanza, shot up 135 per cent. We are recently detecting some European stocks being touted as 'the next GameStop’ among retail investors Ivan Cosovic, Breakout Point The gains stood in stark contrast to a broad market decline triggered by concerns about the rollout of vaccines and pandemic risks to the economy. The US S&P 500 index and tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite both slid 2.6 per cent. “It’s like a wolf pack seeking out the weakest member of the herd,” said Steve Sosnick, chief strategist for Interactive Brokers. The flash rallies prompted TD Ameritrade to put trading restrictions in place for several securities, including GameStop and AMC. The company said the limits could include restricting short sales or requiring 100 per cent margin for certain trades, moves it said would mitigate risks for itself and its clients. “We made these decisions out of an abundance of caution amid unprecedented market conditions and other factors,” the brokerage said. The Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday said it was aware of the volatility across equity and options markets and it was “working with our fellow regulators to assess the situation and review the activities of regulated entities, financial intermediaries, and other market participants”. William Galvin, the Massachusetts secretary of the commonwealth who last month sued the trading platform Robinhood for “gamifying” investing and failing to protect its users, said trading in GameStop should be halted. “At the present time, the best action is to prevent this from being traded,” he told the Financial Times. (Robinhood has denied the allegations in the complaint from the Massachusetts securities division.) Some of the companies whose shares surged were targets of Melvin Capital, a hedge fund that has been singled out by day traders. Those included Evotec, which was up 9.6 per cent; CD Projekt, which rose 5.3 per cent; and the German battery manufacturer Varta, which rose 12 per cent before trimming its gains to trade up 6.2 per cent. Melvin on Wednesday revealed it had closed its GameStop position, having sustained a multibillion-dollar loss on its shorts since the start of this year. Retail investors are using “a tried-and-true hedge fund strategy of swarming crowded trades held by weak-handed investors”, said Andrew Beer, managing member at fund firm Dynamic Beta Investments. In contrast to the US, which has limited disclosure on short bets, hedge funds and other investors have to disclose when they have shorted more than 0.5 per cent of a company’s stock in the EU and the UK, making it easier to target a fund’s positions. Melvin’s latest disclosure shows it has bet against more than 6 per cent of Evotec’s shares, making it the largest single wager against a European company by percentage of shares shorted, according to the data provider Breakout Point. The US hedge fund’s bet against Varta is the fifth largest. The “short squeeze phenomenon fuelled by retail investors’ discussions is spilling over to Europe”, said Ivan Cosovic, founder of Breakout Point. “We are recently detecting some European stocks being touted as ‘the next GameStop’ among retail investors.” The targeting of hedge funds will be viewed with irony by many financial market insiders, given that such funds are often the protagonists in short-selling attacks on troubled companies. Heavily shorted shares with no link to Melvin also rose on Wednesday. Shares in Pearson, the British education publishing company that is the third-most shorted stock in Europe, according to IHS Markit, climbed 14 per cent to close at its highest level in 16 months. Daniel Sundheim’s New York-based hedge fund D1 Capital Partners, which has also been shorting Varta, has the biggest bet against Pearson, at 3.8 per cent of its share capital. The real estate company Wereldhave, in which Woodson Capital has disclosed a 4.2 per cent short position and London-based Adelphi has a 3.6 per cent bet, rose about 5 per cent. Hedge funds in Europe are now fervently scouring lists of most-shorted stocks and message boards such as Reddit for any signs that their short bets could be in trouble. “Any good hedge fund group will be looking at this,” said the head of one multibillion-dollar European hedge fund group. One European hedge fund manager who specialises in short selling described the recent stock market rallies as “insane”, but said the elevated share prices of troubled companies would “make a great opportunity” for short sellers that survived the week’s mayhem.

crystball: I thought today's trading update was very positive. The share price is not overbought at the moment and it may be going upwards in the next few weeks, going into territory not seen for well over a year. The coronavirus pandemic has been a catalyst for the continuing digital transformation which has caused an increased demand for on-line learning products. Pearson has been transformed, following the right strategy at the right time. When the pandemic is over the other areas of Pearson's activity will be restored but Global online learning will be here to stay and easily accessible.
netcurtains: ...sooooo PSON is actually looking good!
netcurtains: 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 .
apollocreed1: 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.
