Launched in May 1896, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (Dow 30 Stocks) is the world’s oldest stock market index that indicates the performance of the 30 blue-chip stocks, which are highly reputable, sustained growth-focused, and publicly tradable.

Investors used this index over the century to understand the direction of the market and the U.S. economy. Many of these companies are household names such as Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp., Walt Disney Co., and General Electric Co.

Unlike the other indices, the Dow Jones Index is a price-weighted index and the value of the Index represents the sum of the share price of the 30 stocks adjusted by dividend or stock split.

Here is the List of Dow Companies sorted by Market Cap, Stock Price, EPS, Dividend, and other performance factors. To know the weight of every company in the Dow Jones Index, check this post – Dow Jones Weightage
