2020 has been a pretty tough year so far for the educational giant. The downtrend seen in the Pearson stock price since 2015 has been aggravated by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Pearson share value has fallen by almost two thirds under the threat of a shift to online learning, which decreases the demand for educational books. 

In an effort to restructure the business towards digital media, the company sold prominent business units including FT Group (the parent company of the Financial Times) and its stake in The Economist.

Moving further, the Pearson stock quote could be threatened by the resurgence of the coronavirus in Europe, threatening to prolong the e-learning trend. Pearson’s six-month interim results for 2020 revealed that underlying revenue had dropped by 17 per cent; operating profit decreased by £167m ($216m, €185m) to a loss figure of £23m, with a profit impact of £140m arising from Covid-19 trading pressures.

Looking at the PSON stock chart today, you can see that in a one-year period the Pearson stock price has fluctuated within a range of 412-712p. Having reached the lowest point of 412p in May, the Pearson stock quote grew to 632p in August 2020, which is a growth of 53 per cent.

Trusted trading Platform is the most trusted trading platform I ever experienced. Even without taking any demo,I have started funding and it’s going well. It is a very easy platform for the beginners and can have better trading experience by using this


great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
