Stock Market App/Widget

Greetings, I just came from an HTC Droid Incredible and now am on the Motorola Droid Razr.

 

Apparently (I havent searched fully yet) this doesnt come with a built in stock app so I'm having to search thru the Market for decent Stock widgets.

 

My main issue is the Dow Jones Industrial Average.  I cannot get any widget to display the proper price.  Every stock app I have right now (about 3 or 4) keeps saying 0.00   0% change, blah blah blah

 

NOTHING

 

Every other quote I feed into the application gets me the proper readings, yes i understand its past closing (market) but why should that matter? My Droid Incredible had an awesome built in Stock Applications, even if after market closings I could still update it and it will give me the proper value ~ 11,900 or something

 

So please, before i go insane, can anyone give me a name of a good (free) stock market app that has a widget (small) that I can put into the droid razr.

 

I only care about 3 tickers: FRSLX; WMT; and DJIA

 

Thanks

this one "was" real nice, but it looks like it is also having issues with the DOW:

you could try it out though, as it has a nice widget (most of the stock market apps don't have useful widgets. the one on your incredible was part of htc's Sense UI.....the best UI out there, in my opinion).

yahoo finance works fairly well - this is the only reason why I have a yahoo account anymore.
