Dow 10000

When an Index begins to tank, how do you get it to rise ?

Came across this posting on another board.
Gave me food for thought as we are coming into the
U.S election run in.

that Kodak gets removed from the DOW soon. They'll say something about how Kodak "no longer represents a significant segment of the economy." Then they'll add a new, big, "growth" company. Remember when they kicked out Goodyear for Microsoft and Intel. Time to get a stock with more pep in the DOW.

Well ? , it is possible isn't it !

Hi Bonsai

Good point.
I thought the Dow was made up of the top 30 companies in terms of capitalization, but if they can choose.....
I would put in the Chinese Tech Stocks. Should give the Dow a boost going forward.

Just my thoughts :)


the mmm stock split must be a pain for the manipulators ,
a 1% move in mmm used to be worth 10 dow points now a 1% move is only worth 5 dow points,

if they are going to chuck out kodak they might as well get rid of atat as well ,
