Sarasota paper cuts stock listings
by Chris Roush
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune, a New York Times Co. paper, has become the latest paper to cut its printed stock listings in the daily newspaper.
Executive editor MikeÂ Connelly wrote, “The Herald-Tribune has reduced the number of stocks and mutual funds listed in the daily newspaper. As more investors use the Internet to track their investments, the expense of publishing daily stock listings has become harder for newspapers to justify, particularly as the economic slowdown forces newspapers and many other businesses to reduce costs. We continue to list the 2,400 most actively traded stocks and mutual funds.
