Template:Infobox Company

Dow Jones & Company (NYSE: DJ), based in the United States is a publishing and financial information firm.

The company was founded in 1882 by three reporters: Charles Dow, Edward Jones, and Charles Bergstresser. Like The New York Times and the Washington Post, the company is publicly traded but family-controlled by the Bancroft family, and not the subsidiary of a multinational corporation.


Print Publishing

Its flagship publication, The Wall Street Journal, is a daily newspaper covering U.S. and international business and financial news and issues. It began publishing on July 8, 1889. Other versions of the Journal include:

Sister publications of the Journal include Barron's Magazine, a weekly overview of the world economy and markets; the monthly journal Far Eastern Economic Review; and the consumer magazine SmartMoney in conjunction with the Hearst Corporation.

Dow Jones also owns Ottaway Newspapers, Inc., which publishes several community newspapers in the U.S.


Electronic Publishing

Dow Jones Electronic Publishing hosts several websites. In addition to online editions of its publications, the company operates the career advancement-oriented and;, with featured content from the Wall Street Journal's politically conservative editorial pages; business portals and; and Factiva, a news and business information service (similar to LexisNexis), owned jointly with Reuters.

In January of 2005, Dow Jones purchased CBS MarketWatch in a transaction valued at $528 Million. MarketWatch is a popular financial website among retail investors, and Dow Jones purportedly coveted its successful business-to-consumer advertising base to augment its reliance on business-to-business advertising and subscription-based business models.



In broadcasting, Dow Jones is co-owner with NBC of the CNBC television operations in Asia and Europe, which are branded "a service of NBC and Dow Jones." Dow Jones also provides news content to CNBC in the U.S. It produces two shows for commercial radio, The Wall Street Journal Report and The Dow Jones Money Report.



The company is also responsible for several widely used stock market indices, among them:



The Bancroft family effectively controls the company class B shares, each with a voting power of 10 regular shares.
