Ticker Symbol

When doing company research using the "ticker symbol" (or "stock symbol") for the company is useful because it uniquely identifies the company. It's a combination of letters and/or numbers.

Ticker Symbol Examples:

  • AAPL is Apple, Inc
  • APLE is Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc.
  • F is Ford Motor Company
  • HD is Home Depot, Inc.
  • O is Realty Income Corporations

You can find the ticker symbol in many business databases, including Hoover's Company Records:
