    A paper written in 2000 compared the actual price-weighted DJIA to a backfilled equal-weighted DJIA, during 1928-1998. The equal-weighted DJIA outperformed by 1.17% annually.

    Dow Jones needs to bite the bullet and reformulate the DJIA as either a value or equal-weighted index. Winning the performance race points toward equal weighting. An equal-weighted DJIA likely could beat the S&P 500.
