REV Group is trading under the ticker symbol “REVG.” Shares have traded around $25 during the company’s first few hours of trading.
REV Group CEO Tim Sullivan and other executives were in New York Friday to ring the opening bell at the stock exchange. If you too are interested in trading as a second income, see here the options to trade gold in the UK
