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)

 The results of each day's session ripple rapidly throughout the world economy. No sector 
 is untouched by energy prices: oil producers and refiners who invest billions to explore, 
 airlines nervous about jet-fuel prices, auto companies who must adjust models rapidly to 
 survive, and retailers like Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) keen to know how deeply its shoppers will 
 be dunned at the gas pump.
