Dow Jones

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), or simply the Dow Jones is a stock market index which measures the performance of 30 companies that are based in the United States.

However, since it includes a relatively small number of companies that are not weighted by market capitalization or an arithmetic mean, many people prefer the S&P 500 to the Dow Jones as a representation of the stock market.

It is the second-oldest U.S stock index, created by Charles Dow. The average was first calculated on 1896.

The 10 components of the index with the highest dividend yields are referred to as the Dogs of the Dow.

As of 2019, there are no cryptocurrency related companies in the Dow Jones.
