Glance at the Dow and a Summary of Each Component’s Valuation – May 2015

photo (7)As one of the features of Premium Membership, I take a look each month 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.  This “Glance at the Dow” is also included in a regular post on the blog once each month, and will continue to be included in each month’s ModernGraham Stocks & Screens, which is released to premium subscribers on the fourth Wednesday of every month.  I hope this is useful to all my subscribers, as another tool for evaluating Mr. Market’s current prices.

Readers may find a screen of some of the best components of the Dow by reviewing 5 Undervalued Dow Companies to Research, and may find it useful to review the history of this screen.
