How to build a stock quote app

I wound like to build a stock quote app.  How would I do that in .net?  I'm assuming I would have to grab data from one of the major finance sites like yahoo, correct?

Here is another question.  Is it possible to have a sort of table to pull information for several tickers at one time sort of like a data table with a stock ticker, the stock name and then information if there is news or not?
