« The S&P Breaks Out | Main | Ticker Sense Weekend Poll »


The cap weightings aren't even close to correct. Better check your figures.

To anonymous post:
The index is weighted as shares outstanding x price. The same way the S&P 500 is weighted. Older companies that have slit, such as GE, then constitute a much larger percentage weight in the index because there are only 30 stocks.

XOM has a bigger market cap than GE but you show GE at a 21% weighting and XOM at only 14%

Anonymous, upon further inspection the weighting table was not correct. I had thought you were talking about the chart, which is correct. The table is updated.

Thank you for pointing out the mistake.
