Stock Ticker Symbols

In some business and financial databases, it is easier to find a company or corporation by searching for their stock market ticker symbol rather than their name.  

Example: Search for Coca Cola Company using the ticker symbol  KO

(Use of the ticker symbol eliminates companies with similar names, such as any of several Coca Cola Bottling Companies).
