Glance At The Dow - March 2014

|
 |  Includes: DIA
by: Benjamin Clark

As one of the features in each month’s issue of ModernGraham Stocks & Screens, I take a look at the Dow Jones Industrial Average, listing out each individual component in an easy to read table, and calculate a value for the index that is based on the ModernGraham valuation model’s estimates for intrinsic values for each component. ”Glance at the Dow” will be included in a regular post on the blog on the second Wednesday of each month, and will continue to be included in each month’s ModernGraham Stocks & Screens, which is released on the fourth Wednesday of every month and includes screens of all the companies reviewed by ModernGraham. I hope this is useful to all my subscribers, as another tool for evaluating Mr. Market’s current prices.
