In professional investment circles the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) continues to be popular, although this theory is widely discredited in academic and professional circles. .Briefly, EMH says that investing is overall (weighted by a Stdev) rational; that the price of a stock at any given moment represents a rational evaluation of the known information that might bear on the future value of the company; and that share prices of equities are priced efficiently, which is to say that they represent accurately the expected value of the stock, as best it can be known at a given moment.^ Stock market prices for shares in a company fluctuate.

.The EMH model, if true, has at least two interesting consequences.^ They are seen on at least two occasions with a white, three-foot scale model of the Pentagon.

.First, because financial risk is presumed to require at least a small premium on expected value, the return on equity can be expected to be slightly greater than that available from non-equity investments: if not, the same rational calculations would lead equity investors to shift to these safer non-equity investments that could be expected to give the same or better return at lower risk.^ Investors who see much better returns ahead are making the same mistake as those who expect a V-shaped recovery, says Michael Panzner, who writes a blog, Financial Armageddon, and is the author of When Giants Fall: An Economic Roadmap for the End of the American Era.

^ When the stock market falls and doesn't immediately recover, most people are aware that the financial underpinnings of the entire country are at least somewhat at risk.

.Second, because the price of a share at every given moment is an "efficient" reflection of expected value, then—relative to the curve of expected return—prices will tend to follow a random walk, determined by the emergence of information (randomly) over time.^ U.S. banks were raised to “attractive” from “neutral” by Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which said share prices don’t reflect prospects for earnings growth.

.For instance, during the technology bubble of the late 1990s (which was followed by the dot-com bust of 2000-2002), technology companies were often bid beyond any rational fundamental value because of what is commonly known as the "greater fool theory". The "greater fool theory" holds that, because the predominant method of realizing returns in equity is from the sale to another investor, one should select securities that they believe that someone else will value at a higher level at some point in the future, without regard to the basis for that other party's willingness to pay a higher price.^ Investors pull out another one.
