Philadelphia Inquirer to cut printed stock listings next week
The Philadelphia Inquirer will cut its printed stock listings beginning next week, according to a short announcement in Tuesday’s paper.
The brief stated, “On Jan. 29, The Inquirer will reduce its stock market and mutual fund listings, which most readers now search for online. Instead, the Business section will offer a full page of stock market analysis — much of it tailored for the Philadelphia region — including the most actively traded shares. On Sundays, The Inquirer will also provide a full page of personal finance and investing advice. That page will replace the tech.life@inquirer page, which will continue to be available online.
“Other newspapers, including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, similarly have reduced their listings.
“The changes will result in significant newsprint and production savings, while recognizing that the growth of the Internet has fundamentally altered the way financial information is delivered. Over the last year, The Inquirer and Philly.com have significantly enhanced stock market coverage online with up-to-the-minute quotes, portfolio-management tools, market alerts and the PhillyInc blog.”
