NASDAQ.com features a real-time quote section that allows users to enter up to 25 different comma-delineated stock market symbols and view a listing of the stock sale price for each company entered. Results are displayed in a tabbed format, with each company receiving its own tab to keep the information separate. Information included in each tab consists of the company's last sale price, the volume of the last sale completed, the company's previous closing price, and the current high and low stock values. Users are also able to view real-time prices for the most frequently search stocks on the main quote page as well.

CNBC.com offers a quick summary of the different stock market statistics for the major markets in each region, including the Dow Jones and NASDAQ. Users can enter a stock market symbol at the top of the page to see a listing of current stock prices in real time as well as the latest new stories about that company.
