Sure, but way to achieve the intended outcome is to publish with a 
routing key of "company" and bind the queues with binding keys
"company" and "company.MSFT".

One doesn't even need a topic exchange for that; a direct exchange will 
work just fine.

More generally, if we have some hierarchical naming scheme for queues 
and want to publish messages to any level in the hierarchy then we'd 
bind a queue named "K_0.K_1....K_N" with bindings "K_0", "K_0.K_1",
