A Look at the Dow Jones 30 Midday and End of Day

Sep 15, 2008: 12:26 PM CST

With today’s activity being so volatile, let’s take a quick look at the percentage change rank of the Dow Jones Industrial Average 30 stocks.

The Dow 30 ranked by percentage (as of 1:15 EST):

Bank of America (BAC) and Citigroup (C) are posting double-digit percentage losses, while Coca-Cola (KO), McDonalds (MCD), Home Depot (HD) and Exxon-Mobil (XOM) squeak out small gains intraday so far.

It may be wise to do some deep chart scanning after the close to see where the dust settles, and sort out by sectors.

One of the phrases I keep hearing on the TV News today is the following, “Well, it’s not as bad as it could have been” meaning the decline on the stock market indexes.  Let’s continue to follow these developments closely.

Update:

Here is the same list (with AIG added – my apologies for the intraday omission) at the close of the day:

Also, even though “it wasn’t as bad as it could have been,” it was still quite bad.

    AIG is conspicuously missing.

    Tradeking,

    Thank you for letting me know that. In my haste to get the graph published, I made a screencapture error.

    AIG was off around 50% at the time this chart was screencapped – it would clearly have been the #1 loser of the day.
