I like Notification Center in iOS5, but I find the stock ticker at the bottom a bit distracting. Is there any way to turn it off?

Go to Settings > Notifications > Stock Widget and turn it Off.

Notifications for all apps that can display them are managed in Settings. Two built-in apps, Stocks and Weather, get exceptional treatment and show in Notification Center as widgets. In the Notifications Settings, they are listed as Stock Widget and the Weather Widget.

To prevent an app from displaying in Notification Center, click the app in the list and make sure the option “Notification Center” is set to off.

Ah! Thank you — I thought I’d looked through Settings but I ignored “Notifications” because it’s in the same place as “Push Notifications” was before, and I always ignored that because I never used them. – Paul D. Waite Oct 13 '11 at 14:26
