floated/quoted/listed on

I saw "floated on" and "quoted on" used in a place where "listed on" is used. Are all three interchangeable in the context of stock market? Or do you think there's a difference in meaning?

    Yes, the floating (the word used is 'flotation' or 'floatation') is the initial offering to the public, and happened at a particular date.
