To Our Readers:

December 27, 2003

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 6, there will be significant changes in the presentation of daily and weekly markets information in The Sun.

Some categories of trading information will be eliminated from both daily and weekly stock, bond and mutual fund listings to save space. Key indicators, including data on the closing price, change in price and measures of the investment's return over time will remain. In no case will the table revisions result in the loss of more than a small fraction of the number of securities issues listed.

An improved type font will be introduced to make the tables more readable.

A redesigned markets page will provide a clear and better organized overview of the day's trading and other key financial indicators. Each day, trading in a local and national stock of interest will be spotlighted in a new feature.

Readers seeking trading information on stocks not listed in The Sun's daily table can visit the "stocks" page in the Business section of SunSpot.Net.

Trading information also is available to anyone with a touch-tone phone at SunDial, the free telephone information system of The Baltimore Sun Co. SunDial is available in English and Spanish. To access the system, call the local number for your area and enter 3000, the four-digit code for the financial news category.
