Re: Legend for DateListPlot

PlotLegend works only for Plot, ListPlot and ListLinePlot. For all
other plots use ShowLegend like here:

<< PlotLegends`

ShowLegend[
 DateListPlot[{Tooltip[FinancialData["MSFT", "2006"],
    "Microsoft Corporation"],
   Tooltip[FinancialData["SNE", "2006"], "Sony Corporation"],
   Tooltip[FinancialData["AKAM", "2006"], "Akamai Technologies Inc"]},
   Joined -> True,
  PlotStyle -> {Red, Green,
    Blue}], {{{Graphics[{Red, Line[{{0, 0}, {1, 0}}]}],
    "MSFT"}, {Graphics[{Green, Line[{{0, 0}, {1, 0}}]}],
    "SNE"}, {Graphics[{Blue, Line[{{0, 0}, {1, 0}}]}], "AKAM"}},
  LegendSize -> 0.5, LegendShadow -> None, LegendLabel -> "Company",
  LegendPosition -> {0.8, 0.0}}]
