Helping the Dow Industrial Average to Climb

The S&P Dow Jones Indices are dropping Alcoa, Hewlett-Packard, and Bank of America from the Dow Jones industrial average. Visa, Nike, and Goldman Sachs will take their place.

The changes “were prompted by the low stock price of the three companies slated for removal and the Index Committee’s desire to diversify the sector and industry group representation of the index," according to a statement from S&P.
