Apple on Thursday replaced AT&T on the Dow Jones Industrial Average list. There were multiple reasons behind Apple’s inclusion in the Dow Jones, including its 7-for-1 stock split, which was announced by the company last year.

Additionally, Visa’s 4-for-1 stock split, which also became effective today, played a part in Apple’s inclusion in the list. The post split price of Visa’s shares reduced the weighting of the Dow Jones Information Technology sector, which was offset by replacing AT&T — who had among the lowest prices in Dow Jones — with Apple.

Shares of Apple (AAPL) opened at $129 on Nasdaq today.
