Why do stocks have different symbols?


Recommended Posts

I may sound uneducated and stupid (for the most part that might be true), but I'm gonna ask anyway. Can't learn if you don't ask!


I think one is an ADR or something like that.


If we look at this one.  TKPYY and TKPHF. I tink the TKPYY is the ADR. But what exactly this is the other one? I think they are just regular shares demoninated in dollars.


Why do companies issues shares this way, as far as having ADRs and ordinary shares?


Thanks for the help guys!

Eddie, thanks, man. I appreciate that! :)


It's just something I've wondered for a while. I don't really buy foreign stocks very often or pink sheets, so I was curious.
