Illinois paper cuts stock listings

February 19, 2007

The Elgin Courer News newspaper in Illinois, one of the Sun-Times newspapers, will be cutting its stock listings next month, according to a short item in Monday’s paper.

The item stated, “Changes in the Your Money section also will be launched in the next few weeks. We’ll offer a more detailed and comprehensive financial page to replace the current one-page stock listings.

“The customized feature will highlight compelling financial news, provide information on interest rates, metals prices, stocks of local interest, highlights of a certain industry, etc. On Sundays, we’ll compile a page of mutual fund listings and some information about different funds to replace the three pages of stock quotes we currently publish.

“We are asking readers to send us an e-mail or a letter with specific mutual fund prices they would like to see included in that table. E-mails can be sent to npetersen@scn1.com or letters to Nick Petersen, P.O. Box 531, Elgin, IL 60121.”
