I download historical data for VNQ and IEF today and notice that Yahoo does not adjust price for dividend anymore.

It's worse than that: they royally screwed up splits. Take a look at (Continued...)

Now, I assume that GTR1 and backtest.org always buy a whole number of shares and have a cash balance left over (because it's unlikely that the cash available is an exact multiple of the purchase
