Shares Dow move to 15,000 points

The Dow broke last week, its historical price record. Titles that stretch traditional index up? Prospects of shares, without which we currently DJIA celebrate new highs are still very optimistic. If at least meet the expectations of analysts, meta 15tisícová not just wishful thinking bull herd.

First we need to understand the method of compiling the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). It is a cost-weighted index, which plays the role of the market capitalization of companies. Monitored seven stocks with the largest weights presented last week, about 43% performance of the whole index.

For example, General Electric at the time had a market capitalization of USD 245 billion with a price per share of $ 23.59, received only 1.27% of the index weight. In contrast, 3M 5.63% weight in the index, a price per share of $ 104.45 and United Technologies to 4.9% by weight and the share price reached $ 89.13 together just 159miliardové market capitalization.

Thus, if for example the 7 components with the lowest weights (collectively represent only 7% of the index) rose price even doubled, while others would share stagnated, the entire index would 15tisícové off track even close.

Calculations show what weight should individual stocks in the index to the 6th March 2013.
