To get the market price of a publicly traded stock, enter it into the search box of a financial website such as Nasdaq or Yahoo Finance. These websites also contain links to lists of stocks that were the most actively traded or gained the most for the trading day.
Yahoo Finance and Nasdaq both offer the option of creating your own online portfolio. With this feature, you can customize a list of publicly traded stocks to track or monitor. After setup, the My Portfolio tools allow simultaneous monitoring of real-time market information for several stocks at a single click of the mouse.
