Berkshire Hathaway, Chipotle, More NYSE Stocks Hit With Trading Halts Triggered By Technical Issues (UPDATED)

Editor’s note: This story has been updated with additional details.

Multiple stocks on the New York Stock Exchange experienced sudden trading halts after 9:40 a.m. ET Monday due to technical issues.

The unexpected pauses in trading were triggered by a technical issue categorized under the “Limit Up/Limit Down” code, which is typically used to curb excessive volatility in a single stock.

The NYSE said it is investigating the reported technical issue. “Additional information will follow as soon as possible,” NYSE-owner Intercontinental Exchange Inc. (NYSE:ICE) stated.

Among the largest companies halted on Monday were Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK) at 9:50:52 a.m. ET and Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG) at 9:44:58 a.m. ET.

Chipotle shares experienced a sudden and dramatic decline of 66%, plummeting from $3,097 to $1,047. The stock resumed trading at 10:21 a.m.

At 9:49 a.m., ET shares of Berkshire Hathaway faced an even more severe downturn, nearly being wiped out with a staggering 99.7% collapse from $622,375 to $185.10. As of this update, trading has not yet resumed for the company owned by Warren Buffett.

Monday’s technical malfunctions on the NYSE occur just one week after U.S. stock exchanges transitioned to a one-day settlement period.
