Looking at stock prices on Yahoo Finance, each stock shows two different prices: Last Trade and Real-Time. Both numbers are updating constantly, but they're always a little different. Which is the actual price? And why bother listing anything other than the actual price?

Last change would be the last operation that was actually completed in real time would be the current bid- ask spread .
