Dow Jones Industrial Average Companies That Own Stock Symbol Domain Names

There are many publicly traded companies that own the .com domain name that match their stock symbol. One example, of course, is Facebook, which acquired last year and now trades under the FB symbol on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

I thought it would be interesting to do an analysis of the 30 companies that are  components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). Listed below are the companies, the stock symbol, and a Yes or No for whether the company owns the stock symbol .com domain name.

  • 3M Co – MMM – Yes
  • Alcoa Inc – AA – No
  • American Express – AXP – No
  • AT&T Inc – T – No
  • Bank of America Corp – BAC  – Yes
  • Boeing Co – BA – No
  • Caterpillar Inc – CAT – Yes
  • Chevron Corp – CVX – No
  • Cisco Systems Inc – CSCO – No
  • E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co – DD – No
  • Exxon Mobil Corp – XOM – Yes
  • General Electric Co – GE – Yes
  • Hewlett-Packard Co – HPQ – Yes
  • Home Depot Inc – HD – No
  • Intel Corp – INTC – Yes
  • International Business Machines Co – IBM – Yes
  • Johnson & Johnson – JNJ – Yes
  • JPMorgan Chase and Co – JPM – Yes
  • Kraft Foods Inc – KFT – No
  • McDonald’s Corp – MCD – Yes
  • Merck & Co Inc – MRK – No
  • Microsoft Corp – MSFT – No
  • Pfizer Inc – PFE – No
  • Procter & Gamble Co – PG – Yes
  • The Coca-Cola Co – KO – Yes
  • Travelers Companies Inc – TRV – No
  • United Technologies Corp – UTX – No
  • Verizon Communications Inc – VZ – No
  • Wal-Mart Stores Inc – WMT – No
  • Walt Disney Co – DIS – No

Somewhat surprisingly, 13 of the 30 DJIA components own their stock symbol domain name. It appears that some don’t even use their domain names though. and don’t resolve for me, which is a bit silly since they could easily be forwarded if development isn’t warranted.
