Dominion Energy vs Dominion Resources - Incorrect Ticker Symbol/Name
In 2016, I purchased shares of what was then Dominion Resources. In February 2018, the company changed its name to Dominion Energy, but as far as I know, did not change either their ticker symbol (D) or their share classes. My brokerage currently lists my shares as Dominion Energy, as it should. The problem is that in Quicken, the ticker symbol listed for Dominion Energy is DCUE, which is actually for Dominion Corporate Units. So, when I automatically download my investment data from my brokerage, Quicken grabs the prices for the DCUE shares, and not the "D" shares, which as far as Quicken is concerned is the symbol for a company named Dominion Resources, which no longer exists. I recently moved my investments into a new trust account with the same brokerage, so my old account has been closed. I'd like to start fresh with the correct data for my new account, but am not sure how to go about getting Quicken to download the correct share prices. Can anyone tell me how Quicken knows which data to download - does it go by the company name, its ticker symbol, the cusip number, or something else? And could I go into Quicken's Security list, edit the names (say, rename Dominion Resources as Dominion Energy and Dominion Energy as, say, Dominion Energy DCUE) and expect the program to then download the correct data?
