Apple offers the Stocks app on iPhone to help you monitor and research the investments you own or consider. You can add specific companies to your watch list by name or symbol and then receive news, financial and investment information as well as charts that show stock activity. Here’s how the stock app works.

How to track stocks using the stock app

The Stocks app comes with iOS by default, so you should already find it on your iPhone. If not, download and install it From the App Store. On the welcome screen, click Continue.

By default, the app includes a watchlist of the Dow Jones and S&P 500 indexes as well as a few individual stocks. But you will likely want to modify your watch list to remove and add specific investments. You can add stock indices, individual stocks, and mutual funds. Click on the ellipsis icon at the top and select Edit Watch List (Figure A).

Next, click the Add button for any investments you wish to include in your watchlist. In the search field at the top, start typing the name or ticker symbol for the stock or box you want to see. Press the plus sign for the correct reference from the search results. Continue this process to add other investments. When finished, click Done (Figure C).

Create another watchlist

You can also create a new watchlist. For example, you may want to have a watch list of stocks that you don’t own but still want to keep track of. The default My Tokens watchlist will contain all the stocks you’ve added to all of your lists. But any additional listings can serve as subsets of a particular stock.

Return to the screen to edit your watchlist. Press the My Symbols entry and select New Watchlist. Create a name for this new list and click Save. Add the stocks you want to track. When finished, click Done. Click the entry for My Symbols to create another watchlist or to switch between each list (e shapes).
