Pearson Company profile

Discover the latest Pearson share price today with our interactive streaming chart

Pearson plc is a multinational publishing and  learning company founded in 1844 and headquartered in London. One of the oldest and largest educational companies in the world, Pearson employs 35,000 people across 70 countries globally. 

The company offers teaching and learning products, and services enabled by technology, as well as world-class tools, content, assessments, etc. Working with educational institutions, governments and other partners, Pearson is committed to equip learners with the necessary skills to enhance their employability prospects.

Pearson mainly operates in four major streams:

  • Global Online Learning with two major businesses: Virtual Schools and Online Programme Management (OPM).

  • Global Assessment: the largest businesses are Pearson VUE and US Student Assessment; includes Clinical Assessment.

  • International: includes Assessment, English, Schools and Higher Education.

  • North American Courseware: featuring US Higher Education Courseware and Canadian Courseware.

Pearson stock is primarily listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) under the ticker symbol PSON and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. It also has a secondary listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol PSO. You can track the Pearson share price live on the interactive chart and decide whether to include it into your portfolio.

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.

Keep an eye on the latest Pearson share price to spot the best points to enter and exit a trade. Explore the Pearson share price chart in real time and trade PSON shares with CFDs at Capital.com.
