A simple way to show many stock quotes and charts

Many moons ago I thought I wrote an AppleScript script named GetStockUrls, whose sole purpose was to open many webpages from finance.yahoo.com at one time. I could run that script, then easily look at the stocks I owned.

This image shows all you have to do in the Mac Automator to achieve this result. On my current Mac this script opens the Safari browser and opens each URL shown in a new tab. I can then move between the tabs to see what I want to see, quickly and easily.

Here are a few quotes from Bill Cosby:
