For all the attention paid to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), it is the S&P 500 that insiders and institutional investors rely on. It represents the industry standard for American large-cap indices.

Made up of just 30 stocks of the 500 of the S&P 500, the Dow uses an unreliable and outdated price-weighting system where the S&P 500 relies on market capitalization to weight its returns. Because of this, long-term return is a much more reliable measure of how large- and mega-cap stocks have performed over time.
