RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Want more information about publicly traded companies?

Boy, have we got a feast for you.

Check out today’s report on the layoffs at EarthLink to see a new feature we have added to WRAL Local Tech Wire and the Business section of WRAL.com.

“A to Z” about companies includes a wealth of information compiled by FinancialServices.com. We call these special pages for companies such as EarthLink, Red Hat, IBM, and many more “A to Z” because of the information cornucopia each provides.

You will be able to get to “A to Z” in two ways – either through a Web link imbedded in the stock ticker or as a Web link called “A to Z” along with the company name.

Here’s how the stock ticker link info works. Click on the stock symbol if it’s highlighted in blue:

“EarthLink (Nasdaq: ) said Tuesday that it is laying off 900 works – approximately half its workforce – and closing several offices as part of a huge restructuring.”

Another way to find “A to Z” is to look in the box we run with many stories that packages Web links to Web sites, photos, graphics, video and other related information. The “A to Z’ link will be company specific, such as:

“EarthLink A to Z: Stock, financial news, much more.”

These pages, which are updated continuously, include:

• Detailed stock quotes

• News

• Stock chart

• SEC filings

• Company profile

• Historical data

Want more? Try this:

• News from sources such as CNet, Street Insider and Market Intelligence.

• Podcasts

• Blogs

• Archived conference calls

Why are we adding “A to Z”? We realize how valuable your time is, and the more detailed information we can provide in one place the better.

“A to Z” will not appear with all stories about public companies initially, but it will become more common in coming weeks. And additional features are on the way.

Each will be designed to provide you with more information faster and easier.

Enjoy.
