The Chicago Tribune, which has cut its printed stock listings twice since the beginning of 2006, will be cutting them once again next week, according to a short note in Saturday’s paper.
Jim Kirk, associate managing editor for business, wrote, “Effective May 12, the Chicago Tribune will change the way it reports its weekly stock listings. The Tribune will continue to publish the largest 575 mutual funds every Saturday, but will carry only the most active stocks of the week as well as the top gainers and losers. In addition, the Tribune will continue to publish the weekly market indicators, mutual fund categories and other indexes. In addition, we will add a new weekly column titled ‘Good Question,’ a personal finance feature that seeks to answer commonly asked investment questions.
“Much of the detailed daily information on stocks continues to be available at Chicago Tribune.com, where readers can get a more complete range of information. Up-to-the-minute stock quotes can also be obtained for free by calling TellMe Networks at (800) 555-TELL (8355).
“The changes were made for numerous reasons, including the more widespread use of the Internet for this type of information.”
