Most Dow stocks were down more this week than during the week of the '87 crash.  As shown, GM was down 45%, AA was down 41%, BAC was down 39%, CVX was down 27%, and AXP was down 25%.  Only two Dow stocks were down less than 10% this week: JPM (-9%) and GE (-0.32%).  Maybe the most important takeaway is the returns these Dow stocks have had since the '87 crash.  Who knows when, but we will go up again.
