What makes the Dow trade at 18,000
what makes the NASDAQ trade at 4,800
the S&P 500 trade at 2,100
the Russell at 2000 trading at 1,300
I'm just curious as to the " Why " behind these Indexes being what they are ?
Say the Dow went up to 30,000
would the NASDAQ and S&P500 follow suit, and increase to... NASDAQ 17,000 S&P 500 8,000 Russell 2000 at 4,000
A question regarding Stocks....
There's GOOG at $520 and WMT at $85
Both of these are Huge companies, but one is over $500 per share and the other is trading at $85
Assuming both have Market Caps of around the same amount, why has GOOG skyrocketed to over $500 when it use to be under $85 , while WMT has gone up in price on a per share basis BUT , WMT is unlikely to ever reach that $500 per share amount that GOOG has gotten to ?
These are just questions that I've wondered , and hopefully I can get some perspective on the " Why ' and reason(s) behind my questions
Thanks to anyone who cares to shed some light and help me understand the reason certain stocks are what they are, on a per share basis
