Blue chip stocks make up the Dow Jones Industrial
Average. You can also see how they perform by watching the Standard
& Poor's 500 Index, which tracks large-cap stocks. Both of these
indexes show the changes in share prices of blue chip stocks at the end of every
trading day. Most blue chips trade on the New York Stock Exchange, so you
can also follow their daily changes on the NYSE ticker.
When choosing a blue chip stock, look at the company's historic
long-term earnings growth and debts. To see whether you are getting the
blue chip at a good price, check its historic share prices and its value per
share. If a share is selling for less than its company's net assets
divided by its total shares, you are probably getting a deal.
