Online financial publications such as Market Watch and Bloomberg Business provide stock market quotes. Each publication allows readers to enter a company name and security type into a search function that displays the company’s stock symbol and current market data, according to their respective websites.
The market data for a company’s stock includes the current trading price, the amount of volume traded for the day and the high and low price for the day, according to both Bloomberg Business and Market Watch. The data also shows whether or not companies pay a dividend on their preferred shares of stock. Stock analysis and other related stories also are featured on both websites.
