Short term view - PEARSON : Prices are still making progress

The background trend is clearly bullish. Prices are still making progress but there is less power in the movement. The next resistance is at 906.00 p. Breaking below the support at 721.15 p would invalidate the trend.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la hausse. Les cours progressent encore, mais le mouvement montre moins de puissance. La prochaine résistance est à 906,00 p. La rupture du support à 721,15 p invaliderait cette tendance.

Morningstar | Pearson Books a Solid 3Q

Narrow-moat Pearson published a solid set of nine-month results with underlying revenue flat year on year as the decline in revenue for U.S. higher education courseware (negative 3%) was offset by growth of other business within the portfolio. Management reiterated full-year guidance of adjusted operating profit in 2018 in the range of GBP 520 million-GBP 560 million. As results are largely in line with our expectations, we do not expect to make any material changes to our forecasts or to our GBX 800 fair value estimate, and we believe the shares are currently fairly valued. Divisionally, per...

Morningstar | Pearson's continued focus on education should provide long-term growth drivers.

Over the past three years, Pearson has experienced almost the perfect storm of negative events: declining university enrolments, an uptick in rental in the higher education courseware market, the loss of testing contracts in the United States, a slowdown in emerging markets, and benign growth in K-12 educational spending. This caused the share price to fall by more than 60% over the past three years.Pearson now finds itself at a crucial juncture. Having shed predictable but declining publishing businesses such as the FT and The Economist, Pearson’s portfolio is now focused on the educational s...

Pearson's continued focus on education should provide long-term growth drivers.

Narrow-moat Pearson published a decent set of first-half results with underlying revenue growth of 2% across the business and a marked improvement in EPS year over year. While it is always difficult to take much from these results, given how back-end-loaded Pearson’s year is, we believe the company is on track to meet our full-year expectations. As such, we do not expect to make any material changes to our forecasts or to our GBX 800 fair value estimate, and we believe the shares are currently f...

He also came under pressure from investors after the Company posted a record loss of £2.6bn for the year and for failing to anticipate a steep decline in the Company’s sales in the US, which suffered as more students chose to rent books from retailers such as Amazon rather than buying them.The Company posted a record £2.6bn loss for last year after it took a massive writedown ...
