They should just buy a Volvo instead.” Robert Katch, president of a California financial advisory firm, with some advice for the perplexed (Mary Altaffer)

Watchlist tip #15: Copy, paste Dow industrials into list Add to ...

Well, there is one more of these to be done after all. In recent posts, we've been through the lists of all the commodities, Canadian indexes, international indexes, currencies and benchmark tickers you can add to your Watchlist. We also provided a list of all the S&P/TSX 60 index tickers so that you can quickly add them. Today, we'll do the Dow Jones industrials .

Here is the full list in alphabetical order:

3M Co. MMM-N Alcoa AA-N American Express AXP-N AT&T Inc. T-N Bank of America BAC-N Boeing Co. BA-N Caterpillar Inc. CAT-N Chevron Corp. CVX-N Cisco Systems CSCO-Q Coca-Cola KO-N DuPont DD-N Exxon Mobil XOM-N General Electric GE-N Hewlett-Packard Co. HPQ-N Home Depot HD-N IBM IBM-N Intel INTC-Q Johnson & Johnson JNJ-N JP Morgan Chase & Co. JPM-N Kraft Foods Inc. KFT-N McDonald's Corp. MCD-N Merck & Company MRK-N Microsoft MSFT-Q Pfizer PFE-N Procter & Gamble PG-N Travelers Companies TRV-N United Technologies UTX-N Verizon Communications VZ-N Wal-Mart WMT-N Walt Disney DIS-N

If you want to copy and paste all of these into a Watchlist all at once, you can use the list of symbols below. As long as the symbols are separated by a comma, you can add them all in at once:

MMM-N, AA-N, AXP-N, T-N, BAC-N, BA-N, CAT-N, CVX-N, CSCO-Q, KO-N, DD-N, XOM-N, GE-N, HPQ-N, HD-N, IBM-N, INTC-Q, JNJ-N, JPM-N, KFT-N, MCD-N, MRK-N, MSFT-Q, PFE-N, PG-N, TRV-N, UTX-N, VZ-N, WMT-N, DIS-N

As I said yesterday, you might find that this is a quick way to check on the biggest movers in the Dow stocks every day, as you can sort the list by % changed.

We're constantly looking for feedback on how Watchlist is working for you. Leave a comment here or email us at globeinvestor@globeandmail.com.
