Stock Symbols

News services, financial sites, blogs are various other websites all refer to stocks on a regular basis. Some mentions are part of a news story while others give advice and review the stock or the company.

The Problem

Formulate an unambiguous, machine parseable, representation that can be used when stocks are mentioned. This should work with hReview as it's just marking up the recommended example a bit more to make it easier for tools. (Also see # 9 in hReview FAQ)


Real-World Examples

 Shares of Tractor Supply (TSCO:Nasdaq - commentary - research - Cramer's Take)
 The 2006 portfolio is up 12%, lead by Expeditors International of Washington (EXPD, news, msgs), 
 CSX (CSX, news, msgs) and Caterpillar (CAT, news, msgs), up 59%, 46% and 39%, respectively 
 I made my top pick Quality Systems (Nasdaq: QSII)
 Toyota Motor Corp. reported Wednesday a 39% rise in its fourth-quarter
 Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (Public, NYSE:BRK.A)
Today's pick is Time Warner.
Golden Apple Oil and Gas, Inc. (GAPJ)
GAPJ - is our NEXT HOT P ICK, which we feel is most undervalued
stock we have ever featured and should out perform all other picks.
