Where does Quicken obtain download the annual dividend information for mutual funds?

Using 2016 for Windows. The fund for example is VGHCX. The details show and annual dividend of $27.3305 which is very close to what the fund distributed back in 2014 but nowhere near what it gave out in 2016. Thanks.

    If your account is setup for downloading, the dividend information is provided by your broker.  Quicken, itself, has no way of knowing what the amount of the dividend is, just the market value quote.

    I believe the downloaded data for stocks and mutual funds, PE ratios, 52-week data, etc. comes from Value Line.
