AKRON, OHIO - Plastics News has rolled out on its Internet site an enhanced, daily version of the industry stock chart it publishes once monthly in the newspaper. The online chart, updated weekdays at about 6 p.m. Eastern time using data from Nordby International Inc. of Boulder, Colo., tracks about 75 U.S. and Canadian public companies that derive at least half of their corporate sales from plastics products and services. The firms are grouped by their primary end-market sector (packaging, construction, automotive, recycling, etc.).
Marketplace.net Inc. provides added value to the feature by automatically graphing the historical share-price and volume data for each company listed. Also, at the bottom of each entry is a hyperlink to Marketplace.net's Stockmas-ter Web site.
