Benzinga - The Dow Industrials Average, a price-weighted average that tracks the performance of 30 blue-chip stocks, has outperformed the broader S&P 500 Index and the tech-weighted Nasdaq Composite Index in the year-to-date period.

What Happened: This Dow’s outperformance would continue at least until January 2023 or a “lot longer,” CNBC’s “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer said on Monday. The stock picker outlined five reasons for the deduction.

  • Recent data points that showed a let-up in inflationary pressure and the dovish Federal Open Market Committee minutes have cemented expectations that the Fed can pull off a soft landing.

  • Cramer expects several cyclical stocks in the Dow 30 Index to benefit from the bipartisan infrastructure bill and CHIPS Act.
  • Supply chain problems faced by Dow 30 companies have appeared to ease.
  • The recent modest retreat in the dollar is positive for the companies that constitute the index, given their large international exposure.
  • Many Dow 30 divided stocks stand to benefit from the easing seen in long-term rates.
  • Being "Old-Fashioned" Is Good? The primary reason why the Dow has fared better than the other two major averages is that it’s full of “old-fashioned, profitable” companies that return cash to shareholders, Cramer said.
  • As opposed to the Dow, the S&P has a mix of both older names and newer ones, speculative companies and the Nasdaq Composite is dominated by the latter category, he added.
Top year-to-date performers among the Dow components are oil stock Chevron Corp. (NYSE: NYSE:CVX) and healthcare company Merck & Co Inc. (NYSE: MRK). These two stocks were up roughly 52% and 41%, respectively, for the period.

On the flip side, Intel Corp . (NYSE: NASDAQ:INTC), Salesforce Inc. (NYSE: CRM) and Walt Disney Company (NYSE: NYSE:DIS) were the biggest decliners.
