I'm sure you can see I am new to stocks, but what does it mean when you look up a symbol/quote and the bid and ask looks something like this:

Bid: $ .01 x 100

Ask: $ 9,000 x 100

For example today I looked up Pixar (PIXR). The last trade was $68.00. It was up $.13, but the bid and ask looked like the example above. Thank you for your help and your patience with the new guy!
