yes it is the aggregator module!

You have to think about it again.
RSS is a really good way to handle this. If your share price provider sends the values as RSS, you can take these and display them in a Block.

You don't need to make them clickable or what ever. RSS is just the way of sharing information, like XML and so on.

Otherwise you have to write a custom module or look for XML-solutions.

Which kind/format of data do you receive?
I get stock prices for my own amusement using some code called Snoopy, it is very cool

the prices get added to my database with a cron job

there are probably lots of ways to do this though.
you can see my use of this here:

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

well, it's quite easy.

use an rss feed + the rss-module.

You can choose how often the module should refresh and output the content to a blocl

That's it!

The RSS-Module is part of drupal core!

Just activate it in your module section!
