Got an interesting question from a subscriber today.

Vereit ( VER ) is trading at 8.73, that price is quoted both on stockcharts.com and finviz.com yet charts are different.

Stockcharts displays +0.55%.

Finviz has the same price but down 1.08%.

How can it be? It is due to stock going ex-dividend today.

Dividend is $0.1375 per share.

Stockcharts adjusts the chart for the dividend, Finviz doesn’t.

I prefer the former as it bakes the total return into the chart but can’t say the other way is wrong either.
