History

The company was conceived as DBC Online by Data Broadcasting Corp. in the fall of 1995.

The marketwatch.com domain name was registered on July 30, 1997.

The website launched on October 30, 1997 as a 50/50 joint venture between DBC and CBS News run by Larry Kramer and with Thom Calandra as editor-in-chief.

In 1999, the company hired David Callaway and in 2003, Callaway became editor-in-chief.

In January 1999, during the dot-com bubble, the company became a public company via an initial public offering. After pricing at $17 per share, the stock traded as high as $130 per share on its first day of trading, giving it a market capitalization of over $1 billion despite only $7 million in annual revenues.

In June 2000, the company formed a joint venture with the Financial Times with Peter Bale as managing editor.

In January 2004, Calandra resigned amidst allegations of insider trading.

In January 2005, Dow Jones & Company acquired the company for $528 million, or $18 per share.
