Valuation Of The Dow Jones Industrial Average – July 2015 Update by Benjamin Clark, ModernGraham
As one of the features of Premium Membership, I take a look each month at the Dow Jones Industrial Average, listing out each individual component in an easy to read table, and calculate a value for the index that is based on the ModernGraham valuation model’s estimates for intrinsic values for each component. This “Glance at the Dow” is also included in a regular post on the blog once each month, and will continue to be included in each month’s ModernGraham Stocks & Screens, which is released to premium subscribers every month. I hope this is useful to all my subscribers, as another tool for evaluating Mr. Market’s current prices.
Readers may find a screen of some of the best components of the Dow by reviewing 5 Undervalued Dow Companies to Research, and may find it useful to review the history of this screen.

At the time of writing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was at 17,919.29. The ModernGraham Valuation of the DJIA was 19,834.16. As a result, the DJIA was trading at 90.35% of its estimated value. This figure is within the ModernGraham margin of error, and therefore it appears the DJIA is presently fairly valued.
