The Dow Jones Gets Less Industrial

For almost 130 years, the Dow Jones industrial average has replaced companies to reflect the shifting U.S. economy. The most recent changes included removing Alcoa (AA) and adding Nike (NKE). Since 1980, industrial companies have been supplanted by retailers, technology companies, and others on the 30-member index.
