Market report shrinking

June 26, 2009 

Dear Readers,

Starting today, the paper has reduced its financial report. Because of space constraints, we will no longer carry a market roundup that includes mutual funds, Treasury rates, commodities and the like. We will still offer some stocks of local interest. The items that have been cut and more can be found online at Click on Stocks Center.

I understand that this move will make many of you unhappy, and for that I apologize. I appreciate your willingness to stay with us through the various changes to the Business pages. I hope you will continue to turn to us for news about the local Business community and how the national economy is shaping our area. In addition to the stories that populate the Business pages, you'll continue to find important Business news on the front page and the Triangle & Co. front, as well as additional stories online at

News & Observer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
