html yahoo stock not working in two DIV's

Hi stack overflow masters.

I have found a script that allow me to get from yahoo, stock info.
but when i use it in different DIV's only one of them work,
I have tried to fix that (not a programmer =( ), and i dont seem to know what is the problem, and not really know how to find the solution.

code found yahoo stock for html + i have added a checker after div load run function :

<div class="table-box">
<div class="table-detail">
<img width="159px" src="http://patrickcoombe.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/new-google-logo-2015.png" />
<div class="table-detail">
<p class="text-muted m-b-0 m-t-0">GOOGLE</p>
<h4 class="m-t-0 m-b-5"><b><div id='GOOGstock'>$</div></b></h4>
<script type="text/javascript">
function GOOGstock() {
var url = "http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql";
var symbol = "GOOG";
var data = encodeURIComponent("select * from yahoo.finance.quotes where symbol in ('" + symbol + "')");

$.getJSON(url, 'q=' + data + "&format=json&diagnostics=true&env=http://datatables.org/alltables.env")
.done(function (data) {
$("#GOOGstock").text("Stock Price: " + "$" + data.query.results.quote.LastTradePriceOnly);
.fail(function (jqxhr, textStatus, error) {
var err = textStatus + ", " + error;
$("#GOOGstock").text('Request failed: ' + err);

var int=setInterval('check()', 500);
function check()
if (chkObject('GOOGstock')==true)

function chkObject(elemId)
return (document.getElementById(elemId))? true : false;

Individually it workes good, but when i add another div (duplicate this script as is to other table and change GOOG to INTC stock to show 2 different stock bid prices),
Then it works only for the one that comes last in the html code.

how can i make it work in 1 page in different places for different stocks.
I want to make "INTC" & "GOOG" stock to show the bid price only.

thank you all in advance.

From what you are telling us, it seems like you haven't replaced GOOG everywhere it needs to. Like

<div id='GOOGstock'>$</div></b></h4>

If I change this to 'INTCstock, I will need to change

if (chkObject('INTCstock')==true)


$("#INTCstock").text("Stock Price: " + "$" + data.query.results.quote.LastTradePriceOnly);

$("#INTCstock").text('Request failed: ' + err);
