: Hi Mark,

: How do I adjust the graph to show the proper before and after distributions prices? I have a MF that had distributions on one day then Yahoo showed the adjusted price after distribution. So I have a $13 cliff on this graph. Thanks for any help.

Hi Larry,
The "Share Price" graph just displays the closing prices, as they
were actually recorded. When a MF pays a distribution, the share price
usually drops by the same amount. If you record the distribution in FM,
and use the "Price + Distributions" graph you will not see this "cliff".
This graph type plots the sum of the actual closing price with your
recorded dist./share. This is intended to give you a more true graphical
picture of the performance.
