I just saw that dividends of US-Stocks using Wealth-Data and earnings using Street-Insider does not match, but cannot find the reason. Please see attached chart. In addition values are very different.
Earnings from Street Insider seems to be correct.

For german stocks using Wealth-Data it seems to be correct.

According to the Wealth-Data FAQ:

Is Wealth-Data dividend-adjusted?
Stock prices are not adjusted for regular dividends, but they are adjusted for “special” one-time dividends and other dilutive corporate actions.

P.S. Not sure what earnings by StreetInsider have to do with Wealth-Data dividends, though.

Hmmmm .... seems to be my fault. I guessed that dividends and earnings are the same. I wondered why dividends in attached charts arrives right after earnings of StreetInsider and fits perfectly for german stocks.

Does StreetInsider have dividends available and do I have to get another fundamental item?

Like StreetInsider doesn't have dividends (being a niche provider), Wealth-Data doesn't support earnings. However, W-D does have Dividend and Split fundamental items called "Dividend (Wealth-Data)" and "Split (Wealth-Data)", respectively.
