If you didn't guess Boeing (NYSE:BA), you're likely not alone. However, Boeing (BA) has been the best performing Dow stock in 2010 by a wide margin. BA is up 25.49% year-to-date, while Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) is well behind in second place with a gain of 10.89%.

Home Depot (NYSE:HD), Travelers (NYSE:TRV), General Electric (NYSE:GE), Kraft Foods (KFT), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) are the other names in the Dow up more than 5%.

Four Dow stocks are down more than 5% year to date -- Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), AT&T (NYSE:T), Verizon (NYSE:VZ), and Alcoa (NYSE:AA). Alcoa is down the most with a decline of 14.14%, while AT&T and Verizon are down 10.85% and 11.77% respectively. These two stocks are a big reason why the Telecom sector as a whole is struggling so much.

The Dow itself is up 1.32% year to date, the average Dow stock is up 1.48% year to date, and 18 of the 30 members are currently in the black for the year.
