Following Trinity Mirror and Johnston Press’ exits from the FTSE 250, the aim is to provide almost real-time share price information for the newspaper and magazine publishing groups currently listed on the FTSE.
Below is a key to the company names:
FUTR – Future Publishing
CAU – Centaur
TNI – Trinity Mirror
INM – Independent News & Media
REL – Reed Elsevier
PSON – Pearson
JPR – Johnston Press
DMGT – Daily Mail & General Trust
INF – Informa
NWS – News Corp
Tim’s made stirling progress with setting up feeds of the share prices to Twitter and there’s no reason why this couldn’t be expanded beyond newspapers and mags in the future.
However, suggestions about a ‘front-end’ for the project are welcome. Building a newspaper-share-price-feed-tracking widget will probably be one of my Christmas Eve tasks – any suggestions?
