Problems with list box and Zone Output

I am trying to set up a list box population when a button is clicked. As I started to enter the headers all that shows up is the first entry repeated 5 times.

I attached a picture of what the output looks like on the button click and the code I used.

Any help would be appreciated, This is driving me nuts!
Thanks!

Private Sub displayStockBtn_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles displayStockBtn.Click
        Dim fmtStr As String = "{0,-25}{0,15:N0}{0,15}{0,15:N3}{0,15:N2}"
        lstOutput.Items.Clear()
        lstOutput.Items.Add(String.Format(fmtStr, "", "Number", "Date", "Purchase", "Current"))
        lstOutput.Items.Add(String.Format(fmtStr, "Stock", "of Shares", "Purchased", "Price/Share", "Price/Share"))
        lstOutput.Items.Add(String.Format(fmtStr, "====================", "==========", "==========", "==========", "=========="))
    End Sub

Your string pattern should look like this....

    Dim fmtStr As String = "{0,-25}{1,15:N0}{2,15}{3,15:N3}{4,15:N2}"
