- Are financial markets efficient?
- That is, do they quickly and accurately impound all available information? Early (1970s – early 1980s) empirical research found in favour of market efficiency. However, starting in the mid 1980s empirical research began appearing in quality journals presenting evidence to the contrary. In a seminal article, DeBondt and Thaler (1985) suggested that investors are prone to systematically over-reacting to both good and bad news. They supported their thesis with empirical evidence that stocks that performed the best over a given three year period performed poorly over a subsequent three year period, and vice versa. Their research re-ignited the market efficiency debate that continues to this day and forms the basis of my current research program.
