Pearson has a long tradition spanning multiple sectors. Yet from the original weird collection of business interests held by the founding Cowdray family the Financial Times is the only surviving unit. Might it too be one day sold off? Not likely any time soon. New Chief Executive Officer John Fallon recently remarked that he could not recall a time when it was “more closely connected to our overall strategy”. Said strategy has turned Pearson into an education and digital services outfit focused on emerging markets. Hence, for example, the company´s drive into Brazil, which lags behind in adult English language training. In parallel, the firm has been hiving off a litany of units now considered non-core. Nevertheless, the resulting cash has been recycled quickly so talk of returning it to shareholders does not seem reasonable. “The stock sells on more than 15 times this year’s earnings with the support of a yield of about 3.5%, still worth holding for the long-term nonetheless," the Times´ Tempus says.
