Any stock of the Dow Jones Index of couse has to be of a major

size compared to most of the stocks in the S&P 500. Another

criterion is the final combination of the stocks. The comanies have

to be as representative as possible for the US economy. That also

why Bank of America an Chevron replaced Altria and Honeywell

earlier this year. Dow Jones & Co. ist still responsible for

the composition of the DJIA.

the editors of the Wall Street Journal decide what

companies are included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average
