It would be great to simplify the !stock bang by using the $ symbol followed by the stock ticker name. This implementation is frequently used on Twitter when you want to reference a stock in a Tweet. For example, if I want to lookup today's quote for Apple (ticker symbol AAPL), I would search for $AAPL. $AAPL can be fed through the stock app and be displayed with search results of AAPL.

I do know that certain well-known ticker symbols are recognized by instant answer, but sometimes less known tickers do not auto display the quote. This suggestion will solve the problem and having to re-enter search with less known symbol + !stock bang.
