Vancouver paper to cut stock listings

February 11, 2007

The Columbian, the daily newspaper in Vancouver, Wash., is changing its stock listings later this month, according to Julia Anderson, the paper’s business editor.

The ColumbianAnderson wrote, “Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 20, we’re adding a list of bond offerings and rates. We’re adding a rotating package of stock performance graphics profiling widely held companies. You also will find a package of forward-looking business news briefs and an expanded list of Treasury bill interest rates and U.S. prime rate and Fed Funds rates. Our Nasdaq stocks list will grow to 2,080, while our New York Stock Exchange list holds at 2,000.

“Here’s what’s changing. Mutual fund listings will appear Sundays only. That’s because mutual fund share prices don’t change much day to day. So once a week on Sunday seems appropriate. A short list of 200 stocks on the American Stock Exchange is being dropped to make room for more general business news.

“Our foreign currency exchange rate package will double in size. A list of commodities and prices will be expanded.

“All of this will arrive in an easy-to-read format from our friends at the Associated Press.”
