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. While it’s arguably outdated and inefficient, it remains the most visible representation of the stock market to the outside world. Consisting of 30 companies selected by the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, it’s meant to give an overview of stock performances by looking at a slice of those mega- and large-cap companies deemed to best represent the broad economy.

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.
