Mike Panzner on the Net change in the constituent members of the Dow from the January 14, 2000 record close through earlier today...

|Merck & Co||-39.47%|
|Intl Paper Co||-38.47%||[No longer in Dow]|

|Exxon Mobil Corp||59.09%|
|United Tech Corp||98.52%|
|Altria Group Inc||220.83%|
|SBC Communication||[Now part of AT&T]|
What's amazing is that 20 of the 30 Dow Components are off their highs, and that so many of the them are WAY OFF their 2006 highs. Of the 20 Dow components that are below their 2000 peaks, 14 of those 20 off by more than 25%.
That is the nature of a price weighted index . . .
