The Daily Record, the newspaper in Parsippany, N.J., is cutting its weekend stock listings to give it more space, said Executive Editor Dennis Lyons in the Sunday newspaper.
Lyons writes, “Our Sunday Business section has a new weekly stock-market-in-review feature, replacing the old list of stocks and mutual funds which, frankly, was taking up a lot of space repeating old information from the week before.
“Our goal in our Business section is to emphasize local business news and useful personal finance information and tips, such as what is included each Sunday on our popular Making Choices page.”

It seems as if the trend to cut stock listings, which was predominantly occurring in the metro papers at the beginning of the year, has now trickled down to the smaller papers, as witnessed by this announcement and the one from the Oshkosh, Wis., paper Sunday as well.
