About Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

Dow Jones & Company covers the news from Wall Street to Main Street. The company's portfolio of news and information products is anchored by flagship title The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), which has become the nation's #1 daily newspaper, covering global business and financial markets as well as general news and lifestyle topics. Dow Jones delivers content to consumers and enterprise clients around the world across multiple formats, including print, digital, and mobile, as well as live events. Beyond the WSJ, Dow Jones owns business magazine Barron's, financial news site MarketWatch, Dow Jones Newswires, research service Factiva, and Dow Jones Risk & Compliance. The company is a subsidiary of News Corporation.

Strategy

In addition to business-to-consumer and business-to-business subscriptions, circulation, and advertising, Dow Jones derives revenue from custom content, sponsorships, licensing fees for its print and digital products, and participation fees for live journalism events. Consumer products, including the WSJ, Barron's, and MarketWatch, represented approximately 73% of total Dow Jones revenues. 

Professional information products such as Dow Jones Risk & Compliance and Dow Jones Newswires accounted for 27% of Dow Jones revenues. Dow Jones Risk & Compliance offers data solutions to help customers identify risk, corruption, and other compliance requirements. Dow Jones Newswires distributes real-time business news, analysis, and statistical data to financial professionals and investors worldwide. It publishes some 14,000 news items each day, which are distributed via terminals, trading platforms, and websites targeting financial professionals, and individual investors via customer portals and the intranets of brokerage and trading firms, as well as digital media publishers.

The flagship newspaper continues to buck industry trends with strong circulation figures. Its expertise lies in providing the insights that customers demand to make informed financial decisions. It is also focused on mobile revenue growth. In 2018, WSJ Mobile accounted for more than half of the visits to WSJ's digital products.

Dow Jones is not immune from the challenges facing the newspaper industry, however. Like its colleagues at other publications, the company is focused on improving efficiencies within its news-gathering operations, combining its consumer publications and news services division.
