When you're managing a portfolio of stocks, it's important to stay up to date with company news. Has Apple, Inc. announced a new version of the iPhone? Is the management shifting at Exxon Mobil? Are new regulations affecting Tesla's future performance? Easy access to these updates via a News API helps you keep a pulse not only on the company and its performance, but on the general media and public sentiment.

This article explains how to pull the latest news on the stocks you follow via the Intrinio News API.
