Lots of people hear about the Dow Jones over and over again, but many, and I repeat, MANY, people have no clue what it means.  So, to address that, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is the weight-average from 30 blue-chip stocks, which typically are the leaders in their industry. The 30 members can change, but below is a fancy-schmancy chart that lists the 30 stocks as of 6/20/2008. I got this chart from Bloomberg.com  (I’m happy to see Alcoa on there. I used to work for them; really like it.)
