List of Stock Symbols (Publicly Traded and Private)

The Bullish Bears break down the list of stock symbols on this page into publicly traded and private companies. Stock symbols are an arrangement of letters that represent publicly traded securities on major exchanges. When a company issues stock to the public, they choose a symbol representing its shares. It usually correlates with the company name or industry it represents. Investors or traders can look up and purchase these symbols in their brokerage accounts.

We share a list of the top companies, with reviews, along with their symbols if they are public. These lists will be updated if a company changes its listing status and when new companies go public. Just click any of the links to review.

How Do You Identify a Stock Symbol?

Traders identify stock symbols by inputting the three or four-letter tickers of the company into the search lookup field of their brokerage account. If traders don’t know the stock symbol, they can usually do a reverse lookup by typing in the company name. Once you start typing in the company name, their symbol typically comes up unless they aren’t a well-known company or don’t trade on a major exchange.

Another way to look up a company’s stock symbol is to do a Google search, type in the company name, and then the words stock symbol like this “apple stock symbol.”
