On Yahoo! Finance's individual page for each stock, the closing price is displayed alongside the price in after hours trading with the time of update and the percentage and price increase over closing price. Yahoo! and Investopedia's summaries for stocks each include the market capitalization for the traded companies, price to earning ratio and earnings per share.

In addition to stock price data, Yahoo! Finance includes a list of recent investment news items and comparisons to industry competitor stocks. Investopedia's stock pages include recent trades by people employed by the traded company.

CNN Money summarizes the trading day with Dow, Nasdaq and S&P most recent prices, though it does not specify if prices are at close or in after hours closing. CNN's website also summarizes the biggest gainers by price and biggest gainers and losers by percentage for the day. In addition to stock prices, CNN summarizes currency prices and the closing numbers for world markets alongside U.S. markets.
