I am writing a finance application and have attempted to download some data for a single stock (e.g. Microsoft) via the following YQL query.

This data also matches the csv style query here:
However, this data does not match the value on the yahoo finance page for a stock
Ex-Dividend Date: 13-May-14
Incidentally, the 13-May-14 date is correct. The dates returned by the APIs are incorrect.
