The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) are set to take effect this morning. Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) 4-for-1 stock split set off a cascade of changes as it shrank the weighting of formerly the most important Dow member to 3% from around 12%, and the overall technology representation in the index to around 20% from 27%. The new addition of Salesforce (NYSE:CRM) to the Dow will bring the share of tech in the index to about 23%, and will also see Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and Honeywell (NYSE:HON) replace iconic Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM), Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) and Raytheon (NYSE:RTX).
