PSO has so frighteningly few potential catalysts amid a structural business reorganization in an industry that is slowly but surely moving into the digital world. This restructuring doesn't bode well for medium-term performance.

Pearson is doubling down on its move to digital content and educational platforms such as student information systems (PowerSchool) and instructional improvement systems (Schoolnet). Domestically it's well positioned to own the lions share of the near $20B ed-tech market. International is largely untapped but emerging quickly. PSO is best positioned to tap into the emerging international market.

It's the eight hundred pound gorilla of school book printing. .Always seems to reside in it's price range. Decent dividend.

They publish "The Economist" and "The Financial Times," my two favorite news sources. Nuff said.

Quote from Marjorie Scardino: "But I can say that it’s been a very good year for every single part of Pearson. Every one of our companies has grown well, pulled further ahead of its competitors and made good progress on the long-term shift to the digital and international expansion that we’re all pushing for" Comment says it all for the direction of Pearson is UP.

Refer to my NYT call. I believe content is undervalued today and that should change moving forward.

I am slightly concerned that a powerful AMZN could diminish publishers in some way.

Becoming a company that does more than just print/publish school books, even though Pearson is a leader in that field. Branching out into online programs. Not a bigdividen however a solid company.

They have a strong potential for philantropy and already have a big hand in it. While this doesn't directly relate to revenue, they are still capable of transforming education, and they way we get our news. They are going to spend money in various endeavours, without a major new product or service I don't see anyone making money off their stock, but they will continue to run things from behind the scenes.

Just took a test at one of their centers and I cannot imagine that as the world becomes more regulated, and professionals need testing for certification that this part of their business will grow rapidly

PSO has this little thing called Power School - it is an amazingly powerful tool for parents - I call it grade porn and anybody who admits that they really care about how their kids do in school will be addicted. It is a small part of this company but do the math - it could be HUGE

Strong in the US education market, financial information, and book publishing. Owner of the FT and Economist. Finally finding focus, good yield and dividend growth. Would liek to see the FT & Economist divested - I often wonder will teh Washington Post buy it.

The third quarter is always a good one for PSO, despite the fact that Dame Scardino has lost huge amounts of money for everyone!!
