Objective

The Transport folio was developed for investors seeking higher capital appreciation with moderate volatility comparable to the DJTA.

Strategy

The Transport folio consists of the stocks that make up the Dow Jones Transportation Average (DJTA). It seeks to track the performance of DJTA by investing in the same stocks with the same weightings.

Transportation stocks are generally cyclical—meaning that they may rally during a booming market and could be greatly affected by changes in supply and demand during an economic downturn as well as on fuel prices.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. This folio holds the same securities and weightings as the Dow Jones Transport Average (DJTA) as made available quarterly by the Dow Jones Indexes (published in their Analytics and Research section).
  2. The DJTA is a price-weighted index. That means that each security’s weight in the index is determined by its price per share (adjusted to account for stock splits and other changes). Therefore, the higher the price of a given security in the index, the higher the allocation to that security in the index.

Number of Securities

There are generally 20 securities in the folio.

Update Frequency

Every quarter the folio is updated with the weights that are published on the Dow Jones Indexes website. Corporate actions, such as a merger, or other significant events may prompt us to change the securities at any time during the quarter.

If the characteristics of the folio have changed substantially, the securities included may change. Also, corporate actions, such as a merger, or other events may cause changes to the securities held at any time. Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a folio has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings.
