Traditional value-oriented investing ideas, ideally with a margin of safety. Generally look for substantial discounts to intrinsic value, long-term. alternative concept of rational expectations equilibrium. In our model each generation of traders lives for one period in which they purchase and consume a bundle of goods. The utility value of these bundles is random and unknown ex ante to some traders, the uninformed, and is known to others, the informed.

The reasonable investor standard shares the same basic justification as tort law’s reasonable person standard and has been subject to the same set of critiques.

Rational Expectations by Gordon Douglas Menzies and Daniel John Zizzo1 A basic postulate of economics is that agents ‘do the best with what they have’ (Maddock and Carter ). Applied to the formation of expectations (economic beliefs), the theory of rational expectations (Muth ) assumes that agents acquire and process information.

Piazzesi, M. Schneider, in Handbook of Macroeconomics, Rational Expectations Equilibrium vs Self-confirming Equilibrium. A rational expectations equilibrium is a sequence of temporary equilibria such that P t i = P 0 for every period t and agent s thus coincide with the physical probability for all events: all agents agree with the econometrician on the distribution of.

Rational expectations theory is an assumption in a model that the agent under study uses a forecasting mechanism that is as good as is possible given the stochastic (random) processes and information available to the al expectations is thus a theory used to model the determination of expectations of future events by economic agents.

An implication of rational expectations theory: The forecast errors of expectations will, on average: fully reflect all available information The efficient market hypothesis assumes that prices of securities in financial markets.

Would that investor have a claim by saying, "Hey, this was an incredibly material fact to me. I only invested because the lobby was going to be blue and it turns out it was never going to be blue".

I think it would be pretty easy to conclude, based on the reasonable investor standard that no, this investor would not have a claim.model, since the ex ante stage (t = 0) does not play a role in rational expectation theory.
