Since its founding in 1896 with 12 stocks, the Dow Jones industrial average (DJIA) has included America’s largest companies across a wide range of industries. Along with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite, the Dow serves as a bellwether for the general U.S. stock market.
After being on Dow Jones index since its inception, General Electric (GE) was dropped from list in 2018. The industrial giant was replaced by pharmacy powerhouse Walgreens Boots Alliance.
Walgreens stock has continued to struggle since joining the DJIA, as has GE stock. Both companies remain widely held and followed, and trade many millions of shares each day on average.

Investors use the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq composite to gauge strength or weakness in the U.S. stock market as a whole. Each of these three major indexes provides different insight into the current market trends.
With just 30 stocks, the Dow focuses on a relatively small number of large-cap, highly liquid names. With 500 stocks, the S&P 500 gives a much broader look at the market, still with a focus on large-cap companies. The Nasdaq Composite contains all the stocks traded on the tech-heavy Nasdaq, including small-cap, midcap and large-cap names. The Nasdaq 100 features only the 100 largest nonfinancial companies trading on that exchange.
