Looks like a typo bug that I introduced :). Fix should be rolling out now.

Seem to be seeing additional issues with the stock instant answer.
Some scenarios it is working properly for stocks such as MSFT, FB, JNJ.

But for other stocks such as GE, GM, FRO, it is just pulling in the Wikipedia info.

Is this possibly an edge case where the stock symbol is either the same as the company name, or the beginning of the name (in the case of Frontline)?
