HowStuffWorks notes that the computer also gathers imbalance information that has the potential to affect stock prices, such as if a company announced bad news after the market closed the previous day. At that point, an opening price is assigned to each stock.

Price information is released at 9:25 a.m. Eastern to dealers along with imbalance information at 9:28 a.m. Eastern before the market officially opens at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, notes NASDAQ Trader.
