Data Maintenance

During the course of stock market analysis, many adjustments to the data are required to ensure accurate and informed charting.  These adjustments can include share splits, bonus issues, capital reconstructions, mergers and name changes to mention a few.  This ensures that your analysis is based on comparable data, where years of historic data is back-adjusted for changes that effect the capital structure and, therefore the share price, of a company.

Using data that is not adjusted can lead to poor decisions and costly mistakes. 

The adjustments for Corporate Actions that we apply to our data are based on the official dilution factors and adjustments advised by the relevant exchange.

As a supplier of reliable and accurate data, we do not believe it is appropriate for us to make arbitrary decisions regarding the application of adjustments and, therefore, we apply all Corporate Actions without exception.  The Corporate Actions we adjust for include:

  • A Capital Reconstruction, including Splits and Consolidations.

  • Bonus Issues.

  • Capital Returns.

  • Special Dividends (from 01 July 2000) however not ordinary dividends.

  • Name and Code Changes.

In summary:

  • GemPro utilises an automatic data management system to ensure that any adjustments required are applied without the need for user intervention.

  • We apply all Corporate Actions as summarised above.

  • All adjustments are based on information provided by the relevant exchange.

  • We do not adjust our data for Ordinary Dividends however do adjust for Special Dividends (from 1 Jul 2000) based on the official dilution factors calculated by the relevant exchange.

  • We do not apply any other data adjustments other than the official adjustments.
