Historical prices incorrect after split
Q2017H&B R15.13 Build 126.96.36.199, Win10
Quicken price history, and thus all related calculations,
are incorrect after Stock Split. In my
case, DDM split 3 for 1 on 5/24/18.
Historical prices seem to have all been updated to the price
before the split divided by 3. Thus:
All reporting for periods before the split, such
as Market Value, Gains/Loss..., are misstated.
Reporting for the day of split misstated as
having a massive gain that day.
Reporting for periods after split are OK, since
Number of Share and Current prices are correct.
Other threads seem to have different circumstances, unless I
missed it. In a similar thread (post), https://getsatisfaction.com/quickencommunity/topics/problem-with-historical-price-for-itr , q.lurker suggests 2 possible
alternatives to the stated problem.
a) Create the new security, new name, new ticker, and use a
Corporate Acquisition to have that new security acquire the old one.
Edit the original security name to be the new
name; edit the original ticker....
It seems the only reasonable approach is to use a) in my
case, but I’m not sure if there is a better solution. Any other suggestions?
