NYSE-Listed Stocks Halted for Unclear Reasons


By Denny Jacob

Trading in dozens of stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange were unexpectedly halted on Tuesday, with bellwethers such as Nike Inc., Walmart Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. among the mix.

Many of the stocks were halted to address volatility, with the reason given being a limit up limit down, according to the exchange’s website. Others were halted for pending news.

CNBC reported that the issue, an apparent technical one, has been resolved, according to the NYSE.

A representative for the exchange didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
