What is that new stock symbol?

Question: Regarding the stock prices shown daily in your paper: There is a "u" which shows up before the closing price of GM stock, but nowhere in the paper can I find a key which explains what this "u" means. -- Dale Porter, Bayview, Idaho

Answer: I checked with Rick House, who puts together our stock pages, and he said that the "u" is a new symbol that signifies a new, 52-week high for the stock in question. That's good news for GM stock! Your question served as a good reminder for us to add that symbol to our key. Thanks! -- Ken Sands, managing editor of online and new media
