What is the Dow Jones? Who’s listed on the Dow Jones?

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.)

What is the Dow Jones Industrial Average? What are the 30 companies?

Posted on June 6, 2008. Filed under: -- Building Wealth, -- For The Investor In YOU, -- Investing, -- Today's DJIA 30, . More Resources For YOU! | Tags: , , , , , , |


By Molly Malone

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a popular measuring stick for the NYSE, is a gauge of how the entire U.S. stock market is doing. Also called the DJIA, it consists of 30 large, widely-held public stocks, all representing major industries like technology, finance, and retail.  

All 30 companies are price-weighted (this is where each stock makes up a fraction of the index that is proportional to its price). The Dow Jones’ averages are unique in that they are price-weighted, rather than market-capitalization-weighted. Their component weightings are therefore affected only by changes in the stocks’ prices, in contrast with other indexes’ weightings that are affected by both price changes and changes in the number of shares outstanding. 

It is just one of many popular market indicies.

The 30 stocks are selected by editors at The Wall Street Journal. The editors make frequent changes to those listed on the Dow in order to maintain relevance with the overall current market.  I got my undergrad in Pittsburgh, so let’s take steel for example. As the US economy has moved away from a manufacturing focus, steel companies have fallen off the Dow.  At the same time, other industries and stocks are added over the years as well, like technology and energy for example. Below is a list of the Dow Jones Industrial Average 30 members at close time on June 6th, (date I wrote this). Click here to see who’s listed on the Dow TODAY!! It’s kinda fun to compare the prices and to see those that aren’t on the list any longer, and those that have been added.

Did you know that the DJIA was first published in The Wall Street Journal in 1896? Yep. It’s initial value was 40.74, and originally consisted of 12 stocks (mostly railroads) instead of 30. GE is the only stock to still remain——although it has dropped on and off over the years. The Dow Jones is currently the most-quoted market indicator in newspapers, on TV and on the Internet.
