Corpus Christi paper drops printed stock listings

December 4, 2007

Corpus Christi Caller-Times editor Libby Averyt writes Tuesday that the paper is cutting its printed stock listings in the daily business section.

Stock listingsAveryt wrote, “Another response to readers’ habits is our move away from extended stocks listings and toward more in-depth business reporting and columns with perspective. Newspapers across the country have reduced or eliminated daily stocks listings, as more and more readers turn to the Internet for real-time stock market information.

“We will continue to provide a snapshot of the markets’ daily activity and stocks of local interest on our new After the Bell page, found in the main news section daily, right before the Opinion and Viewpoints pages. After the Bell, which is on page 9A today, also features interest rates and market trends. Main news has grown into two sections, with the Opinion and Viewpoints pages found on the last two inside pages of the second A section.

“To complement these changes in the paper, we’re providing increased stock market information on our 24-hour Web site, Caller.com. Visitors to Caller.com/business have access to more than 7,000 U.S. stocks and their company profiles, a stock ticker updated every 20 minutes, profiles of various money market funds, and updates on the markets’ top 10 gainers, losers and volume leaders. Caller.com also provides an enhanced look at stocks of local interest including new, analytical information including 52-week price bars, trend indicators and the five-year change.”
