: I can't seem to figure out how this is calculated i.e. the share price on the DIV+NAV graph. I added in all the distributions I received but I still don't get the same share price calculated by FM on the NAV+DIV graph. Some distributions were reinvested, others taken as cash. I just don't get it. HELP much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Don,

This graph plots the share price plus distributions per share. It
doesn't matter whether the distributions are reinvested or
distributed. The distributions are added since the start of the
graph date only, not since the inception of the investment.
You can see what distributions are recorded by using "Edit/All Data..."
and choosing "Distributions (all)". One column shows the
distribution per share. This amount is added in as of the date
of the distribution.

The idea of this graph is to show graphically the performance
of the fund/stock. Since distributions decrease the share
price of a fund, by re-adding back in that distribution you can
see the real performance.
