NY Times to end daily stock price listings in April

The New York Times has announced that starting April 4 it will cease publishing daily stock price listings on Tuesdays through Saturdays. Complete financial tables will continue to be published on Sundays.

It will have two pages of market and economic information, including performance listings of the top 100 stocks in the S&P 500-stock index, and other information, detailed in the story.

It will offer a new package of interactive tools and market information on its web site. Complete financial tables will continue to appear in the Sunday issue of the paper.

Reasons for the change: the rising cost of news print and the availability on the Web of stock quotes and financial information.

For students who are assigned to follow a stock daily in a newspaper, the Wall Street Journal would still be an option. (Perhaps the assignments will change.)
