How to 'suppres' ListView display while processing

Hi, I'm making a stock analysis program and while in a loop, I'm writing the analysis results (thousands of individual records) to a TListView for display. It all works fine, but the TListView of course, constantly is being updated, refreshed and displayed with new entries while I'm going through the loop -I'm sure this must be slowing down processing. Is there some way I can still update my TListView, but 'suppress' the display of it until I'm done looping through all my 3500 stocks? Then go ahead and display everything?

Thanks
