Suburban Philly paper cuts stock listings

The Bucks County Courier Times is cutting its stock listings in favor of the AP’s Money & Markets page, according to a story in Sunday’s paper.

Bucks County Courier TimesRose Venditti McIver wrote, “Most of our agate (the small type) listings will remain on the four days we run the Money & Markets package. We’ll run 1,024 listings from the New York Stock Exchange, 920 from the Nasdaq, 144 from the American Stock Exchange and 735 mutual-fund listings. The Sunday agate package will remain unchanged. If you find we’ve deleted a listing you count on, call me and we’ll do our best to restore it.

“This change comes as more and more people rely on the Internet for up-to-the-minute stock listings and look to the newspaper to provide more context and help them interpret what’s happening in the financial markets. Responding to that need, The Associated Press has created a Money & Markets package that comprises 20 graphic modules.

“The enhanced financial package that debuts Tuesday features six of the 20 modules. We’ll add more, based on reader interest. Please let us know what you think of this upgrade.”
