Yahoo! Finance - ERUS historical prices wrong

Hello,

The historical prices for ERUS (iShares MSCI Russia Capped ETF) are wrong by the factor 0.5 before the 7 November 2016. 

The correct prices can be found on the emitters site: ishares.com > us > products > 239677 > ishares-msci-russia-capped-etf#

TIA for correcting.

Best,

 

JR.

Hi @_JR_,

 

It looks like the YF adjustment process for splits went haywire on this ETF.  It appears the OHL prices were not adjusted for the 1/2 split before 11/7/2016 but the Closing price was adjusted the wrong way by 0.5.  The actual OHLC prices should all have been adjusted by the split multiplier of 2.

 

  • For example, in a 1 for 2 split, the pre-split data is multiplied by 2.

Yes that's also my read. I hope Y! will fix the data.
