How to Check Walmart Stock

Some newspapers list stock prices in columns

It's a good idea to check your Walmart stock each day the market is open to keep track of your investment in the company. The New York Stock Exchange uses the symbol WMT to represent Walmart. Various websites and newspapers list stock prices--websites provide the most up-to-date stock prices possible, while newspapers list the stock price from the close of the market the previous day.
