The changes that the West Coast paper are making include:
— Providing more information on companies in our back yard, with enhanced listings for the Northwest 50;
— Moving the quick-reference “markets at a glance” information at the top of the main business page instead of at the bottom;
— Listing the ticker symbol of stocks traded on the Nasdaq and New York stock exchanges.
In addition, the paper said, “In an effort to contain our stock listings to a page, we’ve trimmed our mutual funds table to 1,200 of the day’s most heavily traded funds. Although a number of readers turn to Internet sources for real-time stock quotes, we realize that many of you still look to The Spokesman-Review stock pages for information on your investments. So if you’re particularly interested in a mutual fund and don’t see it listed in our table, contact me and I’ll ask to have it added to our list permanently.
“The Nasdaq list is roughly the same as it had been, but we’ve shortened our New York Stock Exchange list somewhat. In both cases, the tables contain stocks with the highest trading volume, so the lists will change daily.”
