The screener at FINVIZ.com will list all publicly traded US companies with their sector as well as sector specialty.

  • I am looking specifically for the architecture industry. Do you know a site that focuses specifically on that? – Cody Rutscher Oct 18 '18 at 13:27
  • Sorry, but I don't know of anything that drills down that far nor do I think that there would be many in that sub sector. It's a bit or work but you could collect a list of major US architecture firms and then use a symbol look up in Yahoo Finance or other. It's not likely to be comprehensive but it might produce something. – Bob Baerker Oct 18 '18 at 13:35
