AOL Stock Moves to NYSE: Shares of America Online Inc. began trading on the New York Stock Exchange today, moving away from the Nasdaq Stock Market, where it was subjected to volatile swings, company executives said. The new stock symbol will be AOL; its symbol on Nasdaq has been AMER. The Dulles, Va.-based company is the nation's largest provider of online services, with more than 6 million subscribers. It grew rapidly in 1994 and 1995 but has slowed this year. AOL executives today will also announce details of the marketing push they have been promising for the fall, including a new slogan. The ad campaign is expected to promote speedier connections and other technical improvements AOL has made to its service.
