Stocklogs Inc.? First Weblogs Launch Under AOL Regime

A bloggy announcement courtesy of Jason Calacanis‘ Weblogs Inc. came over the transom yesterday:

AOL Launches New Blog Network Dedicated to Individual Stocks of the Most Watched and Widely Held Companies

Series of Blogs to Provide Original Analysis and Commentary Plus Information on Breaking News, Industry Trends, Market Moves and More

Dulles, VA (April 27, 2006) — In the first joint creation of a new blogging network since the acquisition of Weblogs, Inc., AOL and Weblogs, Inc. announced today that they have launched a new network, bloggingstocks.com, which will host a series of individual blogs dedicated to providing daily commentary, insightful and thought-provoking analysis and news coverage of some of the most-widely held and followed public companies.

The bloggers will not be making investment buy or sell recommendations or provide any personalized investment advice, but rather providing original and entertaining commentary and analysis so individual investors can become better informed about the stocks they hold or are most interested in.

Entertaining commentary. Related to Wall Street. Sounds familiar.

The first companies to get the Weblogs’ stock treatment: Time Warner, Google, Yahoo, Apple, eBay, Microsoft, Wal-Mart, General Electric.
