  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Some differences are: (1) we could provide a formatter URL with a direct link to the info provided by the actual exchange it is listed on, and that this wouldn't be hidden in the references; (2) we could set up a mix'n'match set that directly sets the values in wikidata; (3) we could more easily set up property constraints that relate to the country it is listed in; (4) we could set up third-party formatter URLs for other webpages that also have info on the companies listed on a particular stock exchange. I realise this is not how we have done previous ticker symbols, so it may be better discussed in a RFC, but in my opinion, our properties for businesses are underdeveloped, so I support these IDs. --99of9 (talk) 01:43, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
    @99of9: I understand your point, but think that an RfC would probably be better. Since even New York Stock Exchange (Q13677) doesn't have a property for itself (stock code on the New York Stock Exchange) there doesn't seem to be precedent for this. --DannyS712 (talk) 02:26, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The property provides a link to the stock exchange that trades a stock of the company. That's useful information for people who are interested in the company. Traditionally, I think we didn't make decisions like this by having an RfC beforehand. ChristianKl❫ 10:27, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think this is ok - they don't use a "symbol" they use an integer number, and presumably (unlike say the NYSE) those numbers would not be re-used over time, so it's a real identifier rather than just a traditional ticker symbol.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Reasonable. But preferably usage as qualifier of stock exchange (P414), not as a standalone property. --Jklamo (talk) 15:11, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
