The Myrtle Beach Sun News becomes the latest paper to cut its stock listings, according to a short item in Saturday’s paper.
The papers that have announced that they’re cutting the stock listings in the printed paper since the beginning of the year include the Florida Times-Union, Sacramento Bee, Monterey Herald, Fort Myers News-Press, Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star, Des Moines Register, Naples Daily News and Birmingham News.
The Myrtle Beach paper stated, “Beginning in March, The Sun News will add more useful financial coverage to its business section, including forecasts, stock profiles and helpful financial advice. The stories will help readers make important decisions about their money, provide financial insight and shine a light on economic trends that will affect saving and investing.
“The money section will also add a special service allowing readers to make sure that their stocks and mutual funds appear on the stock pages.
“In order to do that, we have to trim some of the overall listings, but you will get more personalized service. We will trim the stocks you don’t watch.”
