Cisco Systems has been added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average as General Motors has of course been removed. Cisco released the following statement via the company blog:

Cisco is honored to be included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.  We believe our inclusion in the Dow demonstrates not only Cisco’s role as a broad technology indicator, but how remarkably the Internet and networking have transformed the way businesses and consumers connect, communicate and collaborate.
