    Thanks, I learned something about preferreds. I can get quotes everyday from the symbols I listed. I do not get any quotes for times earlier than I bought them. When I use the procedure you suggest for these symbols on my watch list I still very few quotes.

    To be clear, downloaded quotes come from two sources - your financial institution and Quicken's servers.

    The quotes from your financial institution would typically be for any day your download transactions and your FI reports your holdings.  That report of holdings could be for that specific date or for the day before, depending on their procedures.  The quote would come to your version of the Quicken security based on your matching of a security to the online security.  The ticker for the Quicken security does not matter for that association.  

    Quotes from Quicken's servers (what I referred to above as their regular supplier) are based solely on the ticker symbol (in addition the security must be checked as requesting downloads and either owned or on your Watch List).  That service for 'real-time' quotes typically provides quotes for the last 5 days.  

    So if your Quicken security has the ticker PSA.I, the quotes can only come from your FI.  If the ticker is PSA-I, you could be getting quotes from your FI (values for one day) and from Quicken's sources (values for 5 days).
