Old Navy

Old Navy is a clothing chain serving women, men, and children, that is a subsidiary of Gap.

So if you want to own stock in Old Navy, your only option is to buy shares of Gap. Remember, of course, that like any subsidiary, Old Navy represents only a (minority, here) portion of Gap's overall business. There is no pure-play investment option on Old Navy alone.
