Pearson stock analysis involves checking at least a few of the important things like:

  • Topline: A growing topline, as seen from the Pearson revenue chart, as isn't the case with Pearson indicates a sagging business. One needs to compare the YoY topline or sales growth of PSO stock with its peers like VIA stock and VIAB stock to see if the growth compares well with what can be expected from a company in that industry.
  • Bottom line: The bottomline or the net income figure is arrived at by deducting all expenses from the topline which in this case is $523.25M for PSO stock. An improving bottomline implies that the company is growing its profits.

The income statement is also called the profit and loss statement. Apart from the PSO income statement, one can check the Pearson historical stock prices to check how the price has moved with time.
