vB Stocks 1.0.0
by Antonbomb22(Anthony Scudese)

Compatiability:
Compatiable with 3.0.x(Tested on 3.0.3)

Description:
This hack uses Yahoo Finance's external CSV feature. It converts the CSV to a readable array. This allows you to get stock quotes(not realtime but updated daily) for whatever stocks Yahoo Finance provides via stock symbols(Google = GOOG). You can also get quotes on the DowJones. Also this hack allows your users to look up stocks that you may not have already being pulled from Yahoo Finance.

Very nice hack, quick install (under 10 minutes) and it works great! Hopefully my users will find this as useful as I think it is.

One small suggestion/question... would it be possible to get the company name from Yahoo so a stock shows up Google - GOOG instead of just the ticker symbol? Thanks!

A nice hack, but it should really cache the stock information unless you want to hammer Yahoo.

Your example sites features 13 stocks. With the current implementation, that means every time someone accesses your stock page, your server is hitting Yahoo 13 times. Imagine 20 users accessing your stock page - your server would be hitting Yahoo 260 times. Imagine 200 users accessing your stock page - Yahoo gets hit 2600 times!
