BEDMINSTER, NJ and LOS ANGELES — Investor's Business Daily® and Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, announced the launch of two new mobile applications available to Verizon Wireless' Mobile Web 2.0SM customers. Based on popular features from Investor's Business Daily's Web site, www.investors.com, Stocks On The MoveTM and Mobile Stock Checkup® are perfect for business customers looking for an easy way to stay abreast of all the latest stock trades and updates. Whether traveling for business or just away from the office, mobile professionals with select Mobile Web 2.0-enabled phones can access IBD's powerful investing tools that take advantage of the reliability of the Verizon Wireless network.
Providing mobile professionals with the most accurate and timely stock trading information and unlike many "most active" lists, Stocks On The Move screens only for stocks trading on unusually high volume. Tracking unusual volume gives investors insight into which stocks are being bought and sold by institutional investors on a particular day and often highlights lesser-known stocks showing leadership.
Stock Checkup gives Verizon Wireless business customers access to IBD's proprietary stock ratings that compare over 7,000 stocks by overall fundamental and technical performance. Mobile Stock Checkup, a streamlined version of Stock Checkup, offers mobile professionals the added feature of a favorites list that enables them to easily monitor their favorite stocks' ratings from day to day.
Both Stocks On The Move and Mobile Stock Checkup are available now from Verizon Wireless on select Mobile Web 2.0-capable handsets. Mobile Web 2.0 can be self-provisioned, eliminating the need for customers to call customer service or visit a Verizon Wireless Communication Store to sign up for the service. Customers simply register for Mobile Web 2.0 on their Mobile Web-capable handset and get access to information and content right from their wireless handsets. Mobile Web 2.0 is available for $5.00 monthly access, plus airtime.
Verizon Wireless products and services are available at more than 1,900 Verizon Wireless stores nationwide, including Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and stores within Circuit City, as well as at authorized retailers, including Best Buy. Customers can also find information and purchase Verizon Wireless products and services online at www.verizonwireless.com.
