Where are they now? The 12 members of the 1896 Dow Jones Industrial Average
When the Dow Jones Industrial Average was created in 1896, it had about a dozen industrial stocks.
Apple's addition to the current list of 30 American conglomerates back in March 2015 shows just how far the index has come. It's no longer only focused on "industrial" stocks. Apple took the place of AT&T, which was popularly known as American Telephone & Telegraph when it originally joined the Dow in October 1916.
This index has seen a lot of turnover in its history. And only one of the original 12 members continues to hold a spot in it.

American Sugar Company
American Tobacco Company
Chicago Gas Company

Laclede Gas Company

Fundstrat's Tom Lee thinks these stocks will be a huge deal for returns next year.
