Hi everybody, merry Xmas!
I am a newer, and have some question about the symbol of stock share
what is the meaning of the symbol with suffix .OB and .PK? can I trade them as the same as the normal? do I have any adventure for buying this kind of share.
thanks for your instruction

just the exchange the company is trading on...

'.PK' are Pinksheet stocks
'.OB' are OTCBB, over-the-counter bulletin board stocks

examples: LBTT.PK and PGHI.OB

It depends upon your broker weather you can trade them or not. Usually you can trade OTCBB's normally but you might have to call your broker to trade PK's
