1 Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) 10 Year History
The first section will help you know the performance of DJI over the past 10 years. You will find a table with data for DJI's closing points year-wise. Then you will find a chart representing the table's data.
As you can see from the above chart, the DJI has been a consistent performer for over 10 years. The performance reflects the health of the US economy which is good and growing. In fact, DJI has mirrored the US economy and has returned close to 10% for several decades.
Note: Investors and fund managers track indexes that act as a snapshot of the broader economy. DJI or DJIA is one of the oldest and trusted indices for investors. Some of the big names that constitute the index include Microsoft, Walmart, Apple, Boeing, and Coca Cola.
Note: Some would argue that S&P 500 which tracks a larger number of companies than DJI is a better replica of the broader market. However, the importance of DJI has never diminished to date. The significance of DJI is evident from the fact that most financial websites display DJI alongside S&P on their homepages.
2 Dow Jones Large Cap (DWL) 10 Year History
A company with over $10 billion capitalization can be considered a large cap. DWL index tracks the performance of select large caps in the US. Though not widely used as DJI, this is still a useful index for those interested in blue chips.
Some of the constituents of the DWL index include Microsoft Corp, Johnson & Johnson and JP Morgan Chase & Co.
Below you find a table and a line chart representing the 10-year performance of DWL index.
3 Dow Jones Mid Cap (DWM) 10 Year History
According to Investopedia, the mid-cap companies are the ones that have a market cap between $2 billion and $10 billion. Dow Jones Mid Cap index (DWM) is a closely tracked index by investors who like safe investments that also have the potential to grow. Mid-cap companies, unlike large caps, have plenty of opportunities to grow (and may even become a large cap) in the future. Though they are generally riskier than large caps, they are a lot safer than small and micro caps.
Some of the constituents of the DWM index include Keysight Technologies Inc, Xylem Inc and SS&C Technologies Holdings Inc.
Below is a table followed by a chart representing the 10-year historical performance of DWM index.
4 Dow Jones Small Cap (DWS) 10 Year History
DWS tracks small cap companies. Small cap companies have lesser capitalization than mid-cap companies but generally above $300 million. These companies have immense potential for growth only next to micro caps but are riskier than large and mid-caps.
Some constituents of DWS include Exact Sciences Corp, The Trade Desk, Inc. and Medical Properties Trust.
Below you will find 10-year data table and chart for DWS.
5 Dow Jones Micro Cap (DWMI) 10 Year History
