Quarterly Stock Market & Mutual Fund Review Frequently Asked Questions:

Our paper publishes daily stocks. Why use the quarterlies?

As the economy gyrates, often wildly, your readers need answers to critical, questions that affect their long-term goals with a perspective not easily available by reading daily markets reports. They want to know: How will the market impact my retirement? How can I afford to send my kids to college? How will the market affect my financial well being?

Four times a year, The Associated Press produces its Quarterly Stock Market and Mutual Fund Reviews. These three-quarter page presentations help your readers answer these crucial questions, tailor their investments and plan a more enriching future.

Designed with eye-catching graphics in an attractive layout the AP's Quarterly Stock Market and Mutual Fund Reviews allow your readers quickly to gauge the market in personal terms, relating it to their future, their retirement, their investments. They are three quarters of a page deep to allow for ad space or editorial copy.

What is in the Reviews?

The stock Market Review highlights the market's performance during the past quarter and includes a list of your local stocks, a Centerpiece module with a quarterly wrap-up story reviewing key trends, major indexes, industry performance, and best and worst stocks of the quarter based on market capital.

The Quarterly Fund Review outlines the nation's best and worst performing funds by objective category, the 20 biggest funds by asset rank, a Centerpiece module with a quarterly wrap-up story, and a Fund Focus on a specific fund based on quarterly performance.

What format will the pages be in?

The Reviews are paginated and ready to print as Quark XPress v6 documents, Adobe InDesign CS2 documents, or as PDFs.

Can the Reviews be tailored to fit the width and depth of my page?

We can accomodate narrow web widths; you will need to supply your image area requirements to us. The Fund Review is set at three quarters of a page deep. The Stock Review is the same size but can be made deeper with additional local stocks.

Can I customize the Reviews with special fonts, layouts or an expanded stock list?

We can change the depth of the Stock Review pending depth requirements on your end. We can also use your own font(s) in the agate listings. The graphics utilize standard AP fonts (Helvetica for body copy, Franklin Gothic Demi for headers) and would have to be changed on your end.
