MSN Money stock quotes is a feature offered by Microsoft that allows users to type in a company’s stock- ticker symbol or enter the name of a company to view real-time trading activity, according to MSN Money. A chart shows price movements ranging from one day to five years.
MSN Money is a financial website that provides users with the ability to follow specific stocks, track major market indexes and read the latest financial news affecting the U.S. economy, according to the MSN Money website. The website tracks the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite Index.
The stock-quotes feature shows the company’s current opening price and the day’s previous close, states the MSN Money website. One important feature investors use is the 52-week price range, which shows the highest and lowest price of individual stocks over the past 52 weeks. Another feature is the day’s price range, which shows how well stocks performed throughout the course of the trading day. If a company pays a quarterly, semi-annual or annual dividend, the stock-quotes feature displays the current dividend rate the company pays, expressed as a yield. Advanced features include each company’s current price-to-earnings ratio and current market capitalization.
