The finsym API can find company names within text and return their stock exchange symbols. The API can find full or partial company names, company symbols, and most nicknames (e.g., "Pepsi" for "Pepsico, Inc."). Currently, the API only covers companies listed on NYSE and NASDAQ, with plans in the near future to extend coverage for the London Stock Exchange as well as other exchanges.
At this time finsym is experimental and is currently in alpha-testing.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
