: A number of my funds show precipitous drops on their graphs as a result of dividends. I thought these were supposed to be smoothed out. I go to Yahoo (Adjusted Historical) but nothing seems to change. Am I omitting a step some where?

Hi Harry,
Yahoo (Adjusted Historical) only adjusts dividends when it has them
available. It doesn't have them for funds, only stocks. This would
lead to the drops you see. If you record the distributions in FM, and then
use the "Price + Dist." graph this will smooth out these dips.
