Charlotte Observer cuts stock listings


The Charlotte Observer, which earlier this week named a new business editor, has moved its business news section and cut its printed stock listings.

An announcement in the paper states, “Beginning today, Business news will be anchored here on Page 2B Tuesdays through Fridays. Our Saturday Business pages and Sunday MoneyWise section will remain unchanged.

“In addition, stock listings now appear in a different format. Carolinas Inc., your list of stocks with strong Carolinas connections, will appear on this page. The Reader’s Choice listings of more than 300 stocks will now appear only on Saturdays. Our list of 270 mutual funds, many of them selected by readers, will continue to appear in MoneyWise on Sundays.

“Reducing the listings on weekdays allows us to use our space for coverage of local and regional business news, at a time when more and more readers are getting their daily stock listings online.
