Although most Americans have heard of the DJIA, it is amazing how few actually know how it is calculated or exactly what it means. For this assignment, you will research and write a paper about the calculation, composition, and history of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. To facilitate your research, begin by investigating Shuman’s (2013) review of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Also, consider reviewing other resources in the NCU online library.
After you learn about the DJIA, find and read at least one additional scholarly article discussing the index. Then, share in a short video what you learned about the DJIA—its history, composition (what is included in the index), value, and shortcomings. Your goal is to provide a brief history of the index and in straightforward terms to someone with little or no background in finance or business. Additionally, critically evaluate the DJIA in light of the fact that it is a price-weighted index (as opposed to a more robust value weighted measure like the S&P 500 Index), and then determine how it is comprised of such a limited number of stocks.
For this assignment, you are expected to create a short video between 3 to 5 minutes in length. In your video presentation, you will share what you learned about the DJIA, its history, composition (what is included in the index), its market value, and its shortcomings. Your goal is to provide a brief history and explanation of the index in straightforward terms to someone with little or no background in finance or business. Additionally, provide at least one critical evaluation of the DJIA in light of the fact that it is a price-weighted index (as opposed to a more robust value weighted measure like the S&P 500 Index) and how it is comprised of such a limited number of stocks.
Length: 3 to a 5-minute video presentation
For this assignment, you will create a video presentation of you speaking to a camera with no slides or you may record your voice with a PowerPoint presentation with only audio. For this assignment, you may use Kaltura Capture Space. If you choose another method to record your video, such as on a personal YouTube channel, you must provide a working URL (web address) so that your work can be viewed publicly.
