The History Of The NYSE
While there are a number of stock exchanges in operation, there is no doubt that the NYSE is dominant. About 3,400 common stocks are listed and traded there, including such giants as AT&T, General Electric, General Motors, Ford Motors, Standard Oil of New Jersey, Woolworth, du Pont, Sears-Roebuck, U. S. Steel, and today, Internet giants such as Google, Yahoo and Amazon. It’s come a long way since the early days.
