adjusted closign price: eikon and yahoo finance is difference

i notice that the TR.PriceClose data is different from yahoo finance's adjusted close price.

code is

df, err = ek.get_data(

instruments = ['MSFT.O']

fields = [

'TR.PriceClose.date',

'TR.PriceClose'

],

parameters = { 'SDate' ...



For example for microsoft on 2021-02-12, eikon TR.PriceClose gives 244.990, and for yahoo finance it is 238.582

@ken03

Thank you for reaching out to us.

I checked and found that the close prices on Yahoo finance may be adjusted due to dividends.

I also found this question (When is a dividend price adjustment done in Refinitiv Eikon?) on MyRefinitiv. According to the answer to that question, I think this could be a reason why the prices retrieved by Eikon Data API are different from Yahoo finance.

However, please wait for the confirmation from the content support team in the ticket 13300370.
