The Dow Jones Industrial Average, today with 30 stocks, began in 1896 with just 12 stocks underlying the Index. By fall 1896, Charles Dow dropped the last non-railroad stocks in the original index, making it the 20-stock railroad average. The utility average came along in 1929 (more than a quarter-century after Dow's death, and the railroad average was renamed the transportation average in 1970).

In 1916, the industrial average expanded to 20 stocks, and that number was raised again, in 1928, to 30. As of February 19, 2008, the stocks and symbols are:[1]
