Analyst Rankings of Dow Jones Industrial Average Components Definition Wednesday, November 12, 3:18 PM ET
Investors can keep an eye on a wide variety of stock market indices, but the most famous one is arguably "the Dow" ñ the Dow Jones Industrial Average ñ also often abbreviated as the DJIA. Only thirty components make up this important index, and those component companies tend to be among the largest and most widely followed stocks in the world, with the most robust analyst coverage available.
The large number of available investment opinions from major analysts means that it is possible to take an average of all the analyst opinions out there on any given Dow component ñ assigning a numerical value to 'buy' or 'sell' or 'hold' and computing the average numerical value ñ and thereby measure what analysts as a group think about the stock on average.
By computing the average analyst opinion for every Dow component, and then using those results to rank the 30 components, we are able to get an ever-changing picture of which companies analysts are the most bullish about, to most bearish about.
