The Dow 30: Which Stocks to Buy, Hold or Sell

slideshow image


For all its quirks, the Dow Jones industrial average remains one of the most influential market gauges in the world.

The Dow still makes headlines when it hits new highs, and additions to and deletions from the blue-chip index are watched with interest for what they show about the shifting composition of the U.S. economy.

In this slide show, you’ll find our rating (buy, hold or sell) on each of the 30 stocks in the Dow. Only two stocks warrant a sell rating, reflecting our view that the global economy will continue to grow, albeit modestly. And the holds greatly outnumber the buys because share prices have advanced so sharply over the past four years.

Stock prices and other data are as of June 28.
