    Pearson shares down as core U.S. business revenue stumbles

    After a few tumultuous years, Pearson had pinned its restructuring hopes on the business, calling it last year the "single biggest opportunity" to gain share through its digital transformation. Pearson has cut thousands of jobs and sold assets, including the Financial Times and the Economist, to fund a move into ebooks, rental schemes and online courses. "We have made good progress in 2018, returning Pearson to underlying profit growth ... There is much still to do," Chief Executive Officer John Fallon said.
