Here is the proper way to spell some of the major U.S. companies, as well as their ticker symbols.

The corporate name should be used in any story in which the subject matter could affect a company's business, for example, in an earnings report or any story on an incident that could affect the company's stock. For these, use the formal name used by the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq. For all other stories, the formal name is not necessary on first reference. For example, Allstate (sted Allstate Corp.) is preferable.

Allstate Corp. (ALL)
Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN)
Apple Inc. (AAPL)
AT&T Inc. (T)
Bank of America Corp. (BAC)
Boeing Co. (BA)
Caterpillar Inc. (CAT)
ConocoPhillips (COP)
Comcast Corp. (CMCSA)
Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM)
Google Inc. (GOOG)
McDonald's Corp. (MCD)
Pfizer Inc. (PFE)
PNC Financial Services Group Inc. (PNC)
United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS)
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT)
Yahoo Inc. (YHOO)
