Choosing to sell on NYSE or Nasdaq, doesn't have much to do
with the company's standing. It's just different methods
to buy and sell stocks. On NYSE -- it's a bidding auction
where you buy directly from another investor. On Nasdaq,
you shop around on an electronic communication
system and buy from a broker who's got the
best deal. For a first-time seller like Salem, 
NYSE is probably the best and less riskier option to raise much
needed cash.
