Okay, what does the headline, "Block Trade - Walmart" on 1/3/00 mean? I couldn't seem to find a story to go along with it.

cashaw--

it just means there was a large trade in Walmart and the block was reported on the NYSE tape, therefore warranting a headline on one of the news services. a block could be 100,000 shares or could be 1,000,000 shares--it doesn't mean a lot to the investors, more important to the brokerage firm that bought and sold the block.
