Right now it has a market cap of $184 billing dollars, which is almost half of GE’s.

That is my concern about it as well. I get the feeling that it has gotten so large that it will have difficulty being much better than an index fund going foward. You can already see signs of this over the last five years. Both the DOW and the S&P have beaten it for the last five years.

This second one shows it getting beat quite well by the S&P 400 index (over 50% better performance).
