Legend for DateListPlot

I would like to add a PlotLegend to a time series plot like the one
DateListPlot[{Tooltip[FinancialData["MSFT", "2006"],
   "Microsoft Corporation"],
  Tooltip[FinancialData["SNE", "2006"], "Sony Corporation"],
  Tooltip[FinancialData["AKAM", "2006"], "Akamai Technologies Inc"]},
 Joined -> True]

I tried using the PlotLegends package, but it doesn't appear to work
with DateListPlot
(code below)

DateListPlot[{FinancialData["MSFT", "2006"],
  FinancialData["SNE", "2006"], FinancialData["AKAM", "2006"]},
 Joined -> True,
 PlotLegend -> { "Microsoft Corporation", "Sony Corporation",
   "Akamai Technologies Inc"}]

Is there a work around to this problem or something wrong with my
code?  I want to export the graph to for use in a latex document so
Tooltip is not a useful option.
