  • Midway delisted from NYSE

    Midway has been delisted from the New York Stock Exchange, Edge reports. The company was warned in November that it may be delisted‭,‭ ‬as it had failed to maintain a minimum average closing price of‭ ‬$1‭ ‬per share over‭ ‬30‭ ‬consecutive trading days. Midway filed for Chapter 11 this month. Just depressing.

  • Midway stock falls 40% since sale

    Midway’s stock’s dropped 40 percent since Sumner Redstone dropped his 87 percent share in the firm for a song earlier this week. The publisher is now trading at 23 cents. Midway was served a delisting notice from the NYSE in late November, so we really could be seeing the end here. Watch and wince.
