Washington Post cuts stock, mutual fund listings

November 14, 2006

The Washington Post announced in Tuesday’s paper that it was cutting its stock and mutual fund listings.

Washington PostIt becomes the last of the major papers in this country to make such a move. The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and others had all cut their stock listings earlier this year.

The Post stated, “We have pared back listings to 1,000 stocks and 2,000 mutual funds, based on market capitalization and total assets, respectively, in editions published Tuesday through Saturday. Stocks are no longer segregated by market; New York, Nasdaq and American stock exchange companies all appear in alphabetical order in one list.

“Stocks of local companies are listed in bold text and all are included, even if they are not among the 1,000 largest companies. If you own stocks or mutual funds that are no longer listed, please write to us or send an e-mail and we will try to add them to the list.

“Full listings of individual stocks and mutual funds will continue to appear in Sunday Business. Monday’s Washington Business will continue to publish expanded data on local stocks. You can find up-to-the- minute stock quotes, mutual fund data and investing tools at http://washingtonpost.com/markets.”
