Changes coming to Globe Investor's toolkit

We're upgrading our publishing system -- and as part of that, we'll be retiring some of Globe Investor's older data pages and tools.

Some of these pages run on an old software platform that is expensive to maintain and doesn't support new functions. Switching to a newer system will help us build a more dynamic site and better investing tools in the future.

As a result, we will be retiring some of the less-used pages and we will be redirecting you to others on our site, beginning this month. So, when you visit a familiar page, it might look a bit different -- and you can still find whatever you're looking for.

Here's a list of pages that will lead you to better tools:

- The Fund Selector page will take you to our Fund Filter page. This will move on June 10.

- The Company Profile page for funds will take you to our Fund Lookup page, where you can type in the name of the company or funds you are looking for. This will move on June 10.

- The Fund Chart page will take you to our Fund Lookup page. This will move on June 10.

- The Fund Profile selector page takes you to our Fund Lookup page.

- The Top Movers page takes you to our Fund Filter page.

The pages we are retiring will be:

- Mini-tracker

The following pages have been retired:

- The Estimate Snapshot page. Instead, you can find the analyst estimates for any stock by typing in the stock's name or ticker symbol in the search box at the top of Globe Investor. This will take you to our stock quote page. The Analysts tab on each stock quote page contains the information you need.

- Earnings surprises table

- Quote Pal
