Dividend Data from Yahoo via Amiquote?

asked May 30, 2017 in AmiQuote by Dave

I understand Yahoo does not do the dividend adjustment any longer.  I wish to do the dividend adjustment myself.  

So, my question is:  Does AmiQuote retrieve the dividend data that is shown on the Yahoo website (in addition to the price data) so that I might use it to perform dividend adjustments myself?

For example, see https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/AAPL/history?p=AAPL
and look at May 11, 2017 to see the $0.63 dividend.

AmiQuote is essentially web browser, but specialized in downloading data from public web sources. It does not perform any calculations. It just downloads quotes that are available on the web site. If web site does not perform dividend adjustments (like Yahoo now), AmiQuote won't do that for you. It also does not download dividend data because dividend data are not available in the "Download Data" link.
