Of the orginal dow 30 stocks only GE was part of the original 30 included in the index. So what happened to the other 29? And how bout the S&P? How many of the original 500 are still included. Watch GM and F get removed very soon so that a high flying surviver like AAPL and GOOG can be included. What do they call this, survivership bias? Gummint does this too with economic #s, big time manipulation everywhere.
