There are various statistical tools for measuring the performance of securities markets. The most common are averages such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The prices of 30 industrial stocks are totaled and divided by a divisor that is intended to compensate for past stock splits and dividends. As a result, point changes in the average have only the vaguest relationship to dollar price changes in stocks included in the average.
