There's a few ways of doing this, here are a couple.
1. Deploy a web data connector to retrieve the data into your Tableau viz Web Data Connector
2. Embed a URL web page into your dashboard that points at a website (i.e. Yahoo Finance - Business Finance, Stock Market, Quotes, News ) where you can enter the ticker symbol here or pass it in via a parameter.
How would I find a stock price web data connector? I have searched but am coming up empty.

There's a community sample posted here: Community Portal . Look for "Stock Price History". If this one doesn't work, maybe we could create a new one and then post it out here.
That is definitely helpful. However, that only allows for one stock at a time. Is there the ability to do multiple stocks at the same time?
Not the way that it's designed right now, but it can be created I'm sure.
