Journal of Financial Economics 12 June Shiller concludes that, at least over the last century, dividends simply do not vary enough to rationally justify observedaggregateprice movements.
The excess volatility issue has been investigated most thoroughly by Shiller . Length of the Formation Period and No. Specifically, two hypotheses are suggested: While we are highly sensitive to these issues, we do not thaller the space to address them here. The quarterly journal debodt Economics 1, Mental accounting and consumer choice R Thaler Marketing science 4 3, Consistent with the predictions of the overreaction hypothesis, portfolios of prior “losers”, found to outperformprior “winners.
If no trade is possible, CRSP tries to find a subsequentquote and uses it to computea returnfor the last period. Possible answers to these questions deboondt the argument that investors may wait for years before realizing losses, and the observedseasonality of the market as a whole.

If there were a persistent tendency for the portfolios to differ on dimensions that may proxy for “risk,” then, again, we cannot be sure whetherthe empiricalresults support market efficiency or market overreaction.
As time goes on and new securities appear on the tape, more and more stocks qualify for this step.
