You can make the argument that the Dow Jones Industrial Average isn’t necessarily the best representation of the entire U.S. economy anymore. That title goes to the S&P 500 Index. But you can’t deny that the 30 Dow Jones stocks are kingpins in their respective industries. After all, the stocks in the Dow Jones are some of the crème de la crème of tech, manufacturing and finance stocks.

There’s a reason why nearly $18 billion still sits in the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), and that’s because the index remains a pretty good collection of blue-chip stocks.

But not all thirty Dow Jones stocks are big buys today. In fact, it makes sense to avoid a few of them. With that, how does an investor know exactly which of these stocks belong in your portfolio? Luckily, we’ve done the leg work for you.

Here are seven of the best Dow Jones stocks to own today.
