Washington Post to cut Sunday stock listings

April 26, 2008

The Washington Post will announce in its Sunday paper that it’s cutting its Sunday stock and mutual fund listings, but expanding the amount of information available for those that it will continue to publish.

Washington PostAn item in Sunday’s paper states, “This is part of an effort we started a few weeks ago to reorganize our offerings for investors. Other recent additions to Sunday Business include redesigned inside pages with Market Buzz by Sunday Business Editor Steven Levingston, highlighting an investment insight of the week; Hindsight, which provides a chart of a compelling trend; and Foresight, in which Federal Reserve reporter Neil Irwin previews market-moving news. We also have articles from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and a new Ask the Experts feature in which financial advisers answer questions.

“We have pared our financial market listings on Sunday to 1,495 stocks and 2,275 mutual funds. The number of stocks and funds listed will be very close to what is offered daily in The Washington Post Business section. On Sunday, however, we will offer more information on each stock, including weekly high and low prices and trading volumes. The stocks and mutual funds that make the list will be those with the highest market capitalizations and largest asset values. We will continue to run local stocks.”
