What does the NYSE and the Royal Wedding have in common?
We both have a treasured history, get a lot of visibility, and come from good “stock”…not to mention, we are often decorated in red, white, and blue.
The Royal couple (Prince William and Catherine Middleton) made their debut April 29, 2011.
In honor all of the “Royal” companies that made a mark in their own history books when they listed on the NYSE, here is a list of companies that possess “Royal Stock”--- and when they made their debut on our esteemed Exchange:
