Studying a sample of 85,000 observations, Brada, Ernst, and van Tassel observed that “the distributions, in all cases, are excessively peaked. However … there are no fat tails. At this point we suggest that stock prices differenced across single transactions are not normally distributed, not because they have fat tails, but because they are too peaked” (1966, 337). Let us also mention Sprenkle (1961, 1964), who also noted that the stock price distribution was not Gaussian. It is clear that with the creation of financial economics and the development of stock price databases, the distribution of stock price variations, and their leptokurtic character in particular, began to be apparent and widely analyzed by financial economists.

These examples should not cause us to forget that analysis of price distribution was still rare when another author, Maurice Olivier, published his doctoral thesis in 1926, wherein he correctly pointed out that “a series of indices should never be published unless the distribution of the data used to calculate the index is published at the same time” (1926, 81). Olivier can be considered to have provided the first systematic analysis of price distribution. He obtained the same result as March: the distribution of price variations did not fit with normal distribution.

Thus, in an efficient market, the true model for valuing the equilibrium price is available to agents. To test efficiency, Fama reformulated the expected return by introducing a distinction between price—​defined by the true valuation model—​and agents’ expectations. The test consisted in verifying whether the return expected by the market based on the information used, Φ mt −1 , is equal to the expectation of true return obtained on the basis of all information available, Φ t −1 . This true return is obtained by using the “true” model ( ) 18 Econophysics and Financial Economics for determining the equilibrium price.
