Stock Closing Prices .... are they adjusted for dividends?

Are stock prices adjusted for dividend payments?
In the casa of PSA it was not adjusted.  It was ex-dividend 7-29-2022 and for $13.15.  But, stock prices were not adjusted.

Is this an error or the standard practice?

Not adjusting for dividends and other larger payments causes a false picture of true performance.



I've seen the same frustration, Hugh, where ETFs that are highly touted in articles consistently show a losing chart.  But on tradingview and morningstar, I found that you can select to change to the dividend adjusted chart.
