Best Performing Dow Jones Stocks of 2019

Updated Mar 8, 2019
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a leading stock market index which is published by the Dow Jones Company. With thousands of companies trading in the stock markets, a stock market index facilitates the grouping of a select few companies based on a given criteria, and allows for a single number which acts as an indicator of how the group of companies included in the index is performing.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average, also referred to by ticker symbol DJIA, is one of the most popular stock market index. It contains a list of top 30 companies which are considered the leaders in their respective markets and qualify for being called as the blue-chip stocks. One important feature of the Dow Jones index is that it is a price-weighted index, and not a market capitalization-weighted index like many other popular indexes. Using the concept of a divisor, the stocks which have the highest prices are included in the list of 30 stocks in the Dow Jones index.
Even though the Dow Jones index represents the top 30 companies, investors often tend to look for the leaders within this set of constituents. This article provides a list of companies belonging to the Dow Jones market index which have generated the maximum percentage gains between the period of December 31 of the previous year to the Mar 8, 2019. The list is arranged in the descending order of the percentage gaines achieved by a particular Dow Jones stock over the given period - that is, stock which generated the highest returns is ranked at the top.
