    IBM is leading the pack with a 6,15 %, Boeing 5,8 %, Altria 5,48 % and 3M with a 5,08 % weighting...

    Funny, isn´t it ? GE and MSFT are positioned 23d respecticve 28th ...

    Watch the actual list at :

    -> components
  2. thats because its $ weighted and not cap weighted. so a higher price stock like mo falls 10% has almost 4 times the effect as a ge falling 10%. look at pfe the other week falling $4. even though it fell like 18% mo would have had to fall $14 to have the same effect.
