make an ajax call after every one hour

setTimeout("fetchContent()", 60*60*1000); //milliseconds

and set the data to this id inside the success handler here
http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.get/

$("#stockvalue").html("new value");

<script type="text/javascript">
    function everyHour() {
        //do what you want to do (in this case, update span value)
        document.getElementByID('spanID').innerHTML = 'the new value';
        //program for the next hour
        window.setTimeout('everyHour()', 3600000);
    }
</script>

Hope that helps.
