Short Take: Yahoo taking down message boards for over-the-counter stocks

Internet directory Yahoo is taking down its message boards dedicated to over-the-counter bulletin board stocks, according to Dow Jones newswires. A Yahoo Finance producer cited lack of traffic, but these specific stocks are issued by companies with a reputation for being too small or too speculative, Dow Jones added. Message boards created by Yahoo Finance users will remain intact, as will stock quotes and news items about the securities, the newswire reports said.
