Dow Jones Averages

Measures of changes in the market value of blue chip stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange (and occasionally NASDAQ), weighted by price. Price-weighting means that stocks with higher prices per share affect the averages more. There are four Dow Jones Averages: the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), the Dow Jones Transportation Average (DJTA), the Dow Jones Utility Average (DJUA), and the Dow Jones Composity Average (DJCA). The DJIA tracks 30 major companies in different industries, such as General Electric and Bank of America. The DJTA tracks 20 transportation companies, including railroads and airlines. The DJUA tracks 15 utility companies, most of which are defensive securities. The DJCA tracks all 65 companies in the other averages. See also: Publicly-traded company.
