In a price weighted index, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average, constituent weights are determined solely by the prices of the constituent stocks. Shares outstanding are set to a uniform number throughout the index. Indices using this methodology will adjust the index divisor for any price impacting corporate action on one of its member stocks; this includes price adjustments, special dividends, stock splits and rights offerings. The index divisor will also adjust in the event of an addition to or deletion from the index.
