Quote

1. The highest price that a buyer is willing to pay for a security and the lowest price that a seller is willing to receive. The quote is displayed on a ticker and provides investors with the current price for each security.

2. On an exchange, the last price at which a security, commodity, or derivative traded. This changes throughout a trading day and is recorded on the ticker.

Quotation (Quote).

On a stock market, a quotation combines the highest bid to buy and the lowest ask to sell a stock.

For example, if the quotation on DaveCo stock is "20 to 20.07," it means that the highest price that any buyer wants to pay is $20, and the lowest price that any seller wants to take is $20.07.

How that spread is resolved depends on whether the stock is traded on an auction market, such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), or on a dealer market, such as the Nasdaq Stock Market, where the price is negotiated by market makers.
