GET TO KNOW THE DOW

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is the oldest and most-often cited stock market index for the American equities market. Along with other major indices such as the S&P 500 and Nasdaq, it remains one of the most visible representations of the stock market to the outside world. The index consists of 30 blue chip companies and is a price-weighted index as opposed to a market-cap weighted index. This approach has made it somewhat controversial among market watchers. (See: Opinion: The DJIA is a Relic and We Need to Move On) The history of the index dates all the way back to 1896 when it was first created by Charles Dow, the legendary founding editor of the Wall Street Journal and founder of Dow Jones & Company, and Edward Jones, a statistician. The price-weighted, scaled index has since become a standard part of most major daily news recaps and has seen dozens of different companies pass through its ranks, with only General Electric ($GE) remaining on the index since its inception.
