About a year ago they announced that they would only list the biggest 1500 stocks, today they say they are cutting it to 1000. I didn't really see the point of only listing 1500 stocks, so what is the point of only listing 1000? If they have to cut newsprint costs, they could just omit stock tables all together. Here's what really stuck in my craw and prompted me to post this: As far as I'm concerned, stock prices are THE most relevant news. The Journal considers stock tables to be analogous to printing a dictionary every day just in case somebody wants to look up a word. That's not how I use stock tables, I read through them, virtually line by line, to give me a different perspective on the market. Anyway, Barron's is offering a killer subscription deal that I will take. They still have complete stock tables and I can read them on Saturday nights. The end of an era. How many well-known fund managers today said that as children they would read the newspaper stock tables while other kids would read the comics? the next generation won't be saying that.
