Burger King returns to NYSE

NEW YORK -- The New York Stock Exchange is once again the home of the Whopper.

Burger King Worldwide Inc. began trading as a public company Wednesday under the ticker symbol "BKW." Its shares closed up 3.5 percent at $15.01.

The world's No. 2 hamburger chain had last traded as a public company between 2006 and 2010 before it was purchased and taken private by investment firm 3G Capital.

3G Capital announced an unusual deal in April to sell a minority stake to Justice Holdings Ltd., a London-based entity. Justice emerged as Burger King Worldwide on the stock exchange.
