In a bid to counteract the new web sites from Yahoo Finance and CNBC, CNNMoney.com rolled out its updated web site on Wednesday with a number of new features.
The new site features include live streaming stock quotes that update automatically, without requiring a manual browser refresh. A personalization module on the homepage will track the last 10 stock quotes checked â€“ or, a registered userâ€™s portfolio â€“ with live quotes and a continuous live stream of company-specific news from CNNMoney.com sources and more than 100 external news feeds.
The stock quote page itself has also been revamped to allow single-click access to added financial indicators and will provide more news about companies than any other stock quote on the Internet.
A new portfolio tracker allows individuals to track the net asset value of their holdings on a tick-by-tick basis. Users will have the ability to subscribe to a broad array of targeted email alerts about companies, industries and other subject matters.
The enhanced site will also include more broadcast-quality video from CNN and frequently updated blogs from over a dozen well-known writers from Fortune and Business 2.0.
â€œThe combination of these new applications and content offerings further strengthens our position as the most comprehensive web resource in the business community,â€? said Vivek Shah, president of digital publishing, Time Inc. Business & Finance Network.
