I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In some frameworks there are extensions that do this "out of the box."  If you are developing with native code, you might take a look at the Yahoo  stock quotes API.  The info in this wiki looks pretty good.  The last time I used the API, Yahoo had formal online documentation - you might want to look for that.

Basically you just read from the API URL with file_get_contents().  Then you can see what comes back in the form of a comma-separated string.
