Starting today, The Evening Sun is changing its presentation of news about the stock market.
There are changes in the display of stock and mutual fund tables to produce more compact stock pages with more timely information.
The mutual fund table will not be carried on Mondays. Full mutual fund listings, which contain figures from Friday's close, are available in both the Saturday and Sunday Sun. The mutual fund table will appear tomorrow through Friday in The Evening Sun.
The stock tables are more compact. The dividend column has been eliminated from the full listing. However, the paper will add daily reports of dividends declared. For the final edition, the reports will include not only the previous day's dividends but also all dividends reported by noon on the day of publication.
NASDAQ National Market and American Exchange tables now will carry only those issues most actively traded. The Over-the-Counter table has been dropped.
Stocks of local interest traded on the New York Stock Exchange will be highlighted in bold type. Local-interest stocks on the NASDAQ and American exchanges will be carried in separate tables on the stock page.
Prices of local stocks, as well as foreign currency rates, will be updated in later editions.
