Not very much. Sad but true.\n. \nThey calculate the Dow by adding together the prices of the 30 stocks that comprise the Dow Jones Industrial Average, then dividing by a figure that's SUPPOSED to linearize the DJIA. It takes into account things like stock splits. Right now, the divisor is below on…e, so the DJIA is higher than the combined stock prices of the 30 companies in the DJIA. \n. \nThe DJIA is generally held as an indicator of the health of the market.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSE: DJI, also called the DJIA , Dow 30 , INDP , or informally the Dow Jones or The Dow ) is one of several stock market indices, created by nineteenth-century Wall Street Journal editor and Dow Jones & Company co-founder Charles Dow. It is an index that …shows how certain stocks have traded. Dow compiled the index to gauge the performance of the industrial sector of the American stock market. It is the second-oldest U.S. market index, after the Dow Jones Transportation Average, which Dow also created.. The average is computed from the stock prices of 30 of the largest and most widely held public companies in the United States. The "industrial" portion of the name is largely historical-many of the 30 modern components have little to do with traditional heavy industry. The average is price-weighted. To compensate for the effects of stock splits and other adjustments, it is currently a scaled average, not the actual average of the prices of its component stocks-the sum of the component prices is divided by a divisor, which changes whenever one of the component stocks has a stock split or stock dividend, to generate the value of the index. Since the divisor is currently less than one, the value of the index is higher than the sum of the component prices.. To calculate the DJIA, the sum of the prices of all 30 stocks is divided by a divisor, the DJIA divisor. The divisor is adjusted in case of splits, spinoffs or similar structural changes, to ensure that such events do not in themselves alter the numerical value of the DJIA. The initial divisor was the number of component companies, so that the DJIA was at first a simple arithmetic average; the present divisor, after many adjustments, is less than one (meaning the index is actually larger than the sum of the prices of the components). That is:. where p are the prices of the component stocks and d is the Dow Divisor.. Events like stock splits or changes in the list of the companies composing the index alter the sum of the component prices. In these cases, in order to avoid discontinuity in the index, the Dow divisor is updated so that the quotations right before and after the event coincide:. The current value of the DJIA Divisor is 0.1255527090. This value is regularly published in the Wall Street Journal and is available on-line at the Chicago Board of Trade's web site. (MORE)

Up until recently, it was impossible to buy a share of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). The average consists of 30 companies, so an investor who wanted to mimic the returns of the DJIA would have to buy shares of all 30 companies in proportion to their weighting in the average and continuall…y rebalance their portfolio based on the weighting each company was given in the DJIA. Today, with the advent of ETF's an investor can invest in the DIA, the State Street Global Advisor SPDR of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The DIA ETF seeks to provide investment results that, before expenses, generally correspond to the price and yield performance of the DJIA. (MORE)
