ticker spam

The practice of sticking the stock symbol of a blue-chip firm, such as "MSFT" for Microsoft, at the end of a press release so it gets picked up under Microsoft's stock news page on news feeds. Usually posted by publicity-hungry companies, ticker spam is fortunately dwindling now that PR newswires and others check for it.
