  • Normal.

    The reason, I suspect, is that mutual fund distributions come in more than one form.

    I think that that column is downloaded rather than being calculated from historical dividends. So that column will become stale once downloads stop. At that point, it will make sense to Customize your Portfolio view to remove that column. The Total Return columns are calculated from transactions, so they should continue to be useful.
