Query on Dividend - Manual Override

Hi Evan,

I have manually override the dividend for [Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust - Unit - SGX:RW0U] whereby I own 6000 shares, of which 3000 unit is subjected to brokerage fee and 3000 unit is not.

Upon updating, the total number of units does not add up on the dividend overview but the total amount is correct.

May I ask if there is any error/bug here?

Apologies, the red border blocked the numbers.

Here is the updated one.

Hi,

The reason is because StocksCafe tries to merge dividend with same shares, exdate and currency into one to prevent showing too many duplicate dividends.

In this case, StocksCafe thinks that the two dividends are basically the same hence merged.

So, while the shares is different, the amount is correct.

If that bothers you, one way to solve this would be that to not perform merging for manual overrides.

Cheers,
Evan

Hi Evan,

Many thanks for the explanation.

I am seeing other counters where I split the two dividends, and the system does reflect two dividend instead of merging them.

Is the merging function only ‘activated’ from a date onwards?

Doesn’t really bother me so long as the shares that is not reflecting correctly, does not affect any other numbers.

Sharing screenshots for your easy reference :slight_smile:

Many thanks!

Hi,

Yes, the number of shares need to be the same for them to be merged.

Cheers,

Cool, got it! Thank you Evan for your prompt response as always! Cheers
