NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Google, the wildly popular search engine that will be going public later this year, said in a regulatory filing Monday that it had applied to list its shares on the Nasdaq.
While most newly public technology companies list on the Nasdaq, there was some suspense about whether Google would choose to list on the New York Stock Exchange instead. The company said in its original IPO filing in April that it would list on either the NYSE or Nasdaq.
Google did not say in its new filing what it expected its ticker symbol to be. Nasdaq stocks usually trade with four-letter symbols. Some possible options that are still available are GOOG, GOGL and GGLE.
