To avoid this, use Stock Ticker or newer, and use in shortcodes single instead double quotes for parameters. Example:

How to customize quote output?

On Settings page for plugin you can set custom Value template. You can use macro keywords %exch_symbol%, %symbol%, %company%, %price%, %change% and %changep% mixed with HTML tags , and/or .

Default template is %company% %price% %change% %changep% but you can format it like:

I set to show `%company%` but symbol is displayed instead

Please note that Google Finance does not provide company name in retrieved feeds. You'll need to set company name inCustom Namesfield on plugin settings page.
