Two smaller papers cut stock listings
The Monterey Herald in California and the Fredericksburg paper in Virginia are both cutting their stock listings.
The Monterey paper stated, “Because many of our readers turn to the Internet for stock information, The Herald is introducing a modified format of financial data on Saturdays. Starting today, you’ll find an abbreviated stocks offering in your newspaper, but an expanded financial markets package on our Web site.

Business news will move to the back of the A section on Saturdays.”
