: Mark,

: I have used Yahoo (Historical) to retrieve Dividends and it appears that this server only provides data to 2 significant digits. As an example some SBC stock I have according to the server had a Dist/Shr of 0.25, however in reality it was 0.25375. This may not seem much, but with a few thousand shares the difference gets big enough to notice. I know I can mannually adjust, but was wondering if any other server gives actuals.

: Thanks

Hi Gary,
It looks like you are right, I only see dividends reported to 2 digits.
I'm not aware of any other server offering historical dividend information.
If you know of one please let me know, and we can investigate adding support
for it.
