Aflossing van de wacht

In de Dow wordt binnenkort gesleuteld aan de samenstelling van de korf.

V, GS en NKE komen in de plaats van AA, BAC and HPQ. Opvallend GS staat voor Golman Sachs. Joost mag weten waarom het gevallen beurshuis een plaatsje verdient in de prestigieuze Dow-30.

Alles is goed. Goed voor de Dow. Goed voor deze fondsen.   Maar toch sneu voor de afvallers.

Dit opsmuktruukje moet de Dow hoger sturen. Zoals we lezen in de Financial Times

S&P Dow Jones Indices said the changes were prompted by the low stock  price of the three companies slated for removal and the index committee’s desire  to diversify the Dow so that it more accurately reflects the shifting  undercurrents of the economy.

“I think this is an improvement in the Dow and makes it a better measure of  the market,” said David Blitzer, managing director and chairman of the index  committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “By putting stocks with higher prices we  get a better indication of the market as well as of the economy.”

“These higher-priced companies are a better reflection of the American  economy,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank. The  move would probably bring a lot more attention to them, he said. “A lot of  people know Visa as a credit card company, maybe less so as an individual  stock.”
