DJIYW Dow Jones Industrial Average Yield Weighted Index

The Index is designed to provide exposure to high-yielding equity securities of companies included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which is a price-weighted index of 30 U.S. blue-chip companies. The Index is calculated using a yield-weighted methodology that weights all components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average by their twelve month dividend yield over the prior twelve months. Index constituents must be a part of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Only securities with a track record of consistent dividend payments in the previous twelve months will be eligible for inclusion in the Index.
