There’s a handy new argument to getDividends: split.adjust. It allows you to request dividends unadjusted for splits (#128). Yahoo provides split-adjusted dividends, so you previously had to manually unadjust them for splits if you wanted the original raw values. To import the raw unadjusted dividends, just call:
rawDiv <- getDividends(“IBM”, split.adjust = FALSE)
Note that the default is split.adjust = TRUE to maintain backward-compatibility.
