Leading DJIA stocks Q1 2020, by performance

Cisco was the only Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) stock which increased in value in the first quarter of 2020. In that period, its stock price rose 26.66 percent. The other companies lost value in the wake of the COVID-10 pandemic, which decimated financial markets across the globe.

What is the DJIA?

The DJIA is an index of 30 leading companies in the United States. Founded it 1885, it is one of the most indicators of sentiments on the financial markets. Many analysts follow indices such as the DJIA or the S&P 500 on a monthly or daily basis to have a better idea of how the stock market is doing at a given moment.

The benefit of tracking markets

The business cycle refers to the idea that the economy goes through a cyclic process of expansion and contraction. Stock market indices such as the DJIA can provide information on the timing of the next contraction, or recession. Investors try to use this and other data to predict the performance of sectors, or even single stocks. Of course, there is always a risk of choosing the stocks which don’t perform well.
