No Bobby, in the sense that FinancialData gave you back EXACTLY what you asked for! Let me explain: this is perhaps not so well known/interiorized by most users, but FinancialData info page clearly states that: "For historical data, properties such as "High", "Low", "Close" are adjusted for stock splits, dividends and related changes." So when Bobby asked FinancialData["JANFX", {{2011, 2, 9}, {2011, 2, 11}}] Mathematica gave back historical closing prices ADJUSTED for stock spits ,ect. In order to get the RAW closing prices, one has to ask for FinancialData["JANFX", "RawClose", {{2011, 2, 9}, {2011, 2, 11}}] and indeed one gets.... {{{2011, 2, 9}, 10.38}, {{2011, 2, 10}, 10.36}, {{2011, 2, 11}, 10.37}} the famous 10.36$ paid by Bobby on Feb 10th 2011. hth
