San Francisco—MarketWatch.com announced Monday that it has changed its corporate name to MarketWatch Inc.

The company said the name change was approved at MarketWatch’s annual stockholders’ meeting on Aug. 4.

“The change in our name to drop the ‘.com’ is a reflection of the growth in our business. MarketWatch started out as an Internet provider of market news and information with our flagship Web site, CBS.MarketWatch.com. We’ve since become a diversified global media company encompassing not just an Internet business but a range of other enterprises including television, radio, content licensing, subscription publications and global wire services,” said MarketWatch Chairman-CEO Larry Kramer, in a statement.
