New business news aggregate site launched

August 13, 2008

Ivy Schmerken of Wall Street & Technology writes about a new Web site called Streetread that aggregates business news from more than 20 sites, including Forbes, BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal and Reuters.

StreetReadSchmerken writes, “The site was ‘born out of the daily frustrations of trying to stay up to date with all the important news headlines that surround Wall Street and the rest of the financial world,’ writes Mike Stefanello, the young developer who is the sole owner of the site. Stefanello singlehandedly, designed, developed and launched Streetread.com in mid-June based on the idea that he could simplify the efforts that people go through in their daily activities to keep up with Wall Street news and stock prices.

“‘The site is much more innovative, convenient and easier to use than the typical, and quite boring, Yahoo and Google Finance,’ writes Stefanello in an email. He asked me to share news of the site with our readers.

“It’s fairly easy to click on the various news sites that are available and change the order in which they appear. They range from Barron’s, BusinessWeek and CNBC.com to FT.com, Forbes, Fox Business, Google Finance, Minyanville, Morningstar, Seeking Alpha, The Street.com, The Wall Street Journal and Yahoo Finance.com. Stefanello also writes a blog on the site sharing thoughts on which features he plans to add and charting his progress. One thing he’s doing is adding more unusual blogs like AOL’s BloggingStocks.”
