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.
